I wanted to renew my Colorado Driver’s license online. I did a search for "Adams County Driver’s License Renewal" and the mydriver-license.org website came up. It looked like the official site and since it had .org at the end I thought it was, but driver’s license renewals are handled by the state, not by the county so it was my mistake by putting the county in the search string. It said to click on a button to renew my license, which I did. They charged the fee and an additional $2.99 fee for their services. I got an email from them 3 days later that said "Thank you for purchasing the Road Advisors Guide" and had more buttons to click on for free Road side assistance program and an AD&D insurance policy. There was no information at all about the company anywhere in the email. On 1/7/2017, they took out $2.99 from my checking account. So far no additional money has been taken out.
