    Drove for a guy(1099) then left and went back a few years later(yes I make bad decisions sometimes) I drove a truck on paper logs bc of pre emission engine. Guy is a piece of work and just found out he’s been using me as a ghost team driver for his other trucks with elds so they can run over hours. And I’m pretty sure he has been doing this the whole time I wasn’t running for him. There’s all kinds of other things too but who would I goto about this? Thanks in advance…

    Time to move on. Don't waste your life with outfits like that and end up with nothing when you have to retire.

    I already did but want my name off those logs. Yeh I left a couple months back but just found out he’s been doing this and don’t know who to contact to get this done.

    After 6 months the logs dissapear.

    It may be dificult but make sure your new employer [and any additional employers] does his 'due dilligance' docmenting sending multiple requests to this 'previous employer'.

    If the slimeball continues using your name the day will come that you will need to prove you moved on when your name is included on the lawsuit naming slimeball's driver and team partner [YOU] after the stuff hits the fan.

    Okay, that's fraud pure and simple. Turn him in.

    For the PPP stuff, call the IRS. You might be able to remain anonymous.
