DVLA Fake Scams

Alert message sent 17/06/2021 13:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary

Watch out for these fake emails claiming to be from the DVLA. We received 1,300 reports in one week!

The emails claim that the recipient's vehicle tax is unpaid and states the have 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, wont ask you to share personal information over email or text. If you need to check that it's 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.
