Scammers target DVLA customers

Fake emails and texts supposedly from DVLA are in circulation once more which attempt to lure the recipient into providing personal details and credit or debit card payment information.

The fake emails and texts target people who have just taxed their vehicles or recently claimed VED exemption -- and those who have claimed MOT exemption.

Classic Car Weekly report that "fake emails and texts supposedly from DVLA are in circulation once more". They report that emails and texts target people who have just taxed their vehicles or recently claimed VED exemption. The communications from these scumbags claim that a tax payment has failed and encourages the vehicle owner to visit a fake "phishing" DVLA website which can capture personal details and debit and credit card information.

CCW say "a DVLA spokesperson said they would never send a text or email asking for personal details or payment information, so DVLA's advice is delete the fake emails and and do not click on the link". DVLA also advise that anyone should report any suspicious activityy to the police via Action Fraud at actionfraud.police.uk
