Alert: CNH Digital fraud – how criminals negotiate false documents

The Federal Highway Police in Rio Grande do Sul identified a criminal operation involving the issuance of fake digital driving licenses. The scheme starts with advertisements in groups of messaging applications, promising the quick creation of a driver’s license. Scammers charge between R$75 and R$200 for the fake document, which is made available on an unofficial and potentially dangerous application.

Risks of fake application

Using an unofficial application for your digital driver’s license presents significant risks. Experts warn that all data provided can be exposed and vulnerable, leaving the cell phone and your personal information at the mercy of criminals. Furthermore, the false document is not included in the official DETRAN system, resulting in serious legal consequences.

Legal consequences

Driving with a falsified license is a very serious offense, carrying a fine of R$293 and seven points on your license. Even more serious is the legal penalty for anyone who prepares or uses a false document, which varies from 2 to 6 years in prison. These penalties reinforce the seriousness of the act of acquiring or using a fake driver’s license.

The case of the arrested driver

A driver was recently arrested by the PRF for presenting a false digital driver’s license during an approach on BR-116, in Barra do Ribeiro. The application used by the driver was identical to the official one, but it was not the one provided by the federal government. When checking the document’s QR Code, the police noticed that the code did not work, and the PRF system identified that the man’s official driver’s license had been suspended for 18 years.

Security in the official DETRAN system

DETRAN’s official data system is secure and prevents fraud, providing security requirements that compare information with the national database of qualified employees. Using any other application to access the digital wallet is not recommended due to the risks of information collection and leakage.
