DVLA Email Scam
One of our members has received an email purporting to be from the DVLA. Anyone receiving a similar email should not respond to it or click any links that it may include but report it to Action Fraud: https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ (Telephone: 0300 123 2040).
"I received an e-mail this morning with a fairly genuine looking DVLA title and logo saying my personal profile had some mistakes and that I should fill out a form, which the e-mail had a link to, in order to correct the mistakes. It, obviously, said my payment details were incorrect and my licence would be affected if I didn't correct the mistakes.
I have already forwarded it to the .gov.uk site for reporting these type of scams. It's funny because according to the e-mail address when I examined it closely, the DVLA has moved to Belgium!" (added 02/09/2020)
