A warning for drivers about renewing your license and a website that one woman says everyone needs to stay away from.

Sherri from Hastings says she was the victim of a scam. She received a post card in the mail which said Nebraska DMV, telling her to log on to a website to renew her license. She typed in "" in the search bar and a legitimate link pops up at the top. Everything seemed fine until her bank notified her of an unusual charge.

"They said there was a charge from the United Kingdom for $24.99 that's trying to go through on your credit card and I don't think the DMV would use the United Kingdom to run credit cards through," said Sherri.

Sherri says there's even more fine print. On one of the main pages, it says the site will continue to charge an additional amount every month. Sherri says she wants to get the word out to as many people as possible to be alert. One suggestion is going to the DMV in person.
