CA ABC Issues Warning About Potential Scam

The California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control has issued a warning that licensees are being targeted by a possible scam.  Apparently, licensees have been receiving calls from someone claiming that, as a result of an ABC violation, the licensee must pay a fine.  In short, the ABC does not operate in this manner, and if you receive such a call, check in with your local ABC office before submitting any payment or credit card information.  Also, the ABC is asking licensees to help uncover these fraudsters.  If you are contacted by these scammers, asking for their name and contact information, and pass that information on to the ABC.

If you need to find the contact number for your closest ABC office, it is available at this link.
