Join a tribe, avoid car taxes

Drivers pay for "Native American" status to skip car taxes, registrationA scam sweeping the nation hits South Carolina roads. Richland County investigators say some behind the wheel are getting a free ride from taxes and registration fees, by signing up to be Native American.

[The Little Shell Pembina band of North America is] a self-proclaimed Native American tribe that issues their own plates and registration cards, a great benefit for anyone willing to pay money to be a member of the tribe. The only problem is that the federal government doesn't recognize Little Shell Pembina.
