WWW.TEXASSTYLIST.COM Con Artist Taking Advantage of TDLR Licensees…AGAIN!

TDLR has received reports of a man calling

TDLR license holders and telling them they must

pay for a class as part of a TDLR penalty, and

threatens to close the business. The caller then

demands money or payment via Green Dot Mon-

eyPak cards.

This con artist appears to be targeting people

with previous TDLR violations and may even

mention those violations. He may also say he is

from the local sheriff’s office.

Remember:

• TDLR does not and will never request or ac-

cept payments via Green Dot MoneyPak cards.

• TDLR will never ask you to pay a penalty or

fine without first sending a Notice of Al-

leged Violation to you by certified mail.

This letter will be sent to your last known

address so you must keep your contact in-

formation up to date.

• Lastly, TDLR employees will never

request or accept money or gift cards un-

der any circumstance while visiting your

business.

Scams like this one can happen any-

where, any time to any TDLR license holder.

Please use the information above to identify

suspicious or potentially illegal activity.

Impersonating a public servant is a third-

degree felony under the Texas Penal Code.

If you receive a suspicious call like this, please

contact your local law enforcement agency. You

should also call us at 800-803-9202 to verify we

did not contact you.

E&E Resumes School Inspections November 1

TDLR’s Education & Examination (E&E) division tem-

porarily stopped inspections of Barber, Cosmetology,

and Driver Training schools once Hurricane Harvey

disaster areas were identified in the Governor’s Di-

saster Proclamation. Starting November 1, 2017, E&E

will resume their regular inspection schedule. Efforts

to avoid locations damaged by flooding are in place

and if an inspector arrives at a facility being repaired

due to Harvey the inspector will return to perform the

inspection at a later date.
