A scam website has been detected by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency that appears when people use “Tennessee fishing license” as a Google search.

The scam website appears as an advertisement. The site then allows the user to enter your personal information, such as name, date of birth, Social Security number, driver’s license number, phone number, email address and residential address.
