Scott County Bureau of Motor Vehicles Complaint - Rip-off Registration
SCOTTSBURG, INDIANA -- I am a law-abiding citizen of the state of Indiana and Scott County and have been for over 30 years. This past September when I went into the BMV to renew my registration, I was unknowingly given the wrong registration. The registration was on an old vehicle I had owned 4 or 5 years ago. This was not brought to my attention until a week ago (January) when I noticed that the old car was listed on my registration. I was horrified to realize that I had been driving with fictitious plates for the last 5 months! I thought surely this won't be a big deal for the BMV. I'll go and they can fix it. I was told that it was my fault they made the mistake because I had signed the registration. Honestly, who looks at those things when you only have one car?
They made me pay for the plate AGAIN. So I'm out 50 bucks. To add insult to injury, the manager treated me like I was some sort of criminal because I questioned why I had to pay for the plates again. When I went to slide my debit card to grudgingly pay, she looked at me and asked the cashier loudly and nastily if she had checked to make sure the card was mine. How rude!
I am very unimpressed with the manager and with the system itself when you have to pay for THEIR mistake!
