Last month (April 2009) I had a friend who was sent late fee penalties from the California DMV, for his vehicle registration even though he sent his vehicle registration on time.
We thought it must have just been a fluke until I recieved a late penalties this month (May 2009). The DMV claims to have never recieved my friends or my vehicle registration even though we always send our registration payments early. It appears that the politicians in Sacramento are ripping off people to make up for thier irresponsible over spending. At $200.00 a pop per late fee penalties on top of our doubled registration fees, the monster seems to be very hungry and feeding itself as it pleases. The California State government is not much different then the drug cartels running Mexico! How sad!

#1 Consumer Comment

Did you mail a check?

AUTHOR: Laurie - (U.S.A.)

And did your check clear the bank???

I ask because back in the 80's we MAILED our registration fee check. It was stolen from a Public Blue Mail drop box, the payee name was altered and it was cashed at a mini-market in San Francisco.

(Leaving checks with the flag up in your own mailbox is a clear message to crooks to steal outgoing checks)

We were not aware the payment was not received until we received the letter about the fines for not paying on time. As the payment amount was not changed, our bank records showed that we paid on time. Then we found out it never made it Sacramento in the first place.

The bank refunded our money and provided a letter to the DMV that we made every effort to pay the registration on time and it was their error in not catching the obviously altered check in the first place. The DMV waived the fines completely..


FYI - the mini market in SF took the hit for the money lost by cashing an altered check in the first place.

Receipt

AUTHOR: Marcia - (U.S.A.)

Don't you have a receipt of some kind showing that you paid on time? If so, then it's not a rip-off, just poor bookkeeping on their part.
