Online fraudsters are trying to trick UK riders and drivers with a scam email, pretending to be from the DVLA, asking licence holders to ‘verify your details’. Do not click the link! Thankfully the DVLA have been alerted to the scam, and they’re now warning every man (and any licence holding dogs) not to get sucked into clicking the link.
Here’s the fake email:
From: DVLA <mailto:email@example.com>
Subject: Update Your License Details
We are currrently upgrading our database and all drivers are required to update and verify
there driver’s license details.To complete your license verification with us,
you are required to fill out the form in the link below.
(The links were here.)
Drivers that refuses to upgrade his or her details within two weeks of receiving this verification
email will lose his or her driver’s License and will have to take a fresh driving test.
We sincerely apologise for any inconviniences this might have caused you.
Thank you for your co-operation.
