Road Tax Refund Scam

Motorists are now being warned with regards to a new ‘DVLA’ text scam that appears to swindle people by letting them know they are entitled to a tax refund.

The scam sees drivers get a text from scammers pretending to be the DVLA, announcing a change in rules.

Individuals will be instructed to simply click a link that takes them to a webpage that asks them to fill out sensitive personal data.

The racket could be the most recent in a very long line of techniques which have seen scammers pretend to be the DVLA in an effort to target innocent motorists.

Car owners are now being advised to disregard the messages and delete them straight away.
