Florida Defaced Stickers!

Florida Defaced Stickers!Is it possible you've been a victim of fraud and deception without knowing it? It's now time to check your newly issued Florida specialty license plates for something missing. It has been confirmed that sellers (both ALPCA and non-ALPCA) are selling new Florida specialty license plates with defaced trailer plates posing as passenger plates. This bulletin is focused on exposing a defaced trailer sticker from a untampered passenger sticker.

How are the vandals defacing the stickers? These sellers are using chemicals to rub the classification off of the validation sticker, leaving a blank where it should say the classification to which it is registered to, in most cases TRAILER plates posing as passenger plates or non-classified plates (which don't exist on current stickers). Sellers have been selling the defaced stickered plates as passenger plates or on an "As-Is" basis. A normal validation sticker should always have a classification above the tag number. It was confirmed by a tag agency supervisor that all stickers must have a classification and agencies around the state of Florida have never issued any current validation stickers without classification. Some of the known tags to be defaced are: End Breast Cancer, Protect Our Reefs, United We Stand, Protect Florida Whales, Golf Capital of The World & Red Cross plates.

Also, Florida drivers now get the privilege of advertising the states' web address while driving around. Just when it was time to get a new design for our cars... we only get a redesign. Why can't Floridians show America the other things that make Florida special? For instance maybe our beaches could grace our license plate for a few years. Shame on you Florida!
