    I received a call today from towing company. They were asking for the owner or my company, they said one of my trucks was getting towed. I only have one truck and it is on my yard.

    Is someone using my MC number??? Does anyone have experience something like this?? Should I be concerned.

    Have them take pic of truck being towed. I am thinking someone is looking for a free tow and repair bill.

    Stolen MC # no. Stolen plate, yes. Apparently it's a thing In the Southwest.
    Happened to me in Kingman AZ.

    Did you ask how he got your number ?
    He may just call random trucking companies, hoping to catch someone that he can sucker into paying some fees or deposit.
    Or he could have transposed some numbers, calling you by mistake.

    It was a mistake the guy from the towing company typed the wrong MC number and my came up! But it was just a confusion. Thanks for you help
