• Warning: Scammers Sending Out False Vessel Registration Notices



    Documented Boat Owners - heads up! This letter looks legit but the USCG Documentation website is dco.uscg.mil NOT maritimedocumentation.us

    This “service organization” mails this notice out a few weeks ahead of the proper notice. I fell for it once years back and it cost me hundreds of dollars when the renewal is only $26.

    To make matters worse, they never mailed my document so some drug running boat somewhere probably paid them even more for it.

    I got it all sorted out a few years back with the proper organization but the imposter still has the nerve to send these notices year after year.



    Sherry Smith send out the alert. We have seen this scam before but read the fine print at bottom.

    Beware!
