DVLA scam alert

Alert message sent 17/06/2021 08:16:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Action Fraud has reported receiving over 1,300 reports of fake emails claiming to be from the DVLA.

The emails claim that the recipient's vehicle tax is unpaid and states that they have "a deadline of 5 working days to complete the payment" using the provided link. The links lead to genuine-looking DVLA websites that are designed to steal personal and financial information.

Your bank or any other official organisation, won't ask you to share personal information over email or text. If you need to check that it's a genuine message, contact them directly.

Spotted a suspicious email? Forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) - report@phishing.gov.uk

The DVLA will never ask for bank details over email. The only place to access official information on the DVLA and its services is http://GOV.UK #phishyfridays See less
