DVLA Phishing Scam

The email title is “Failure of Notify Change of Keeper – Final Warning

Then

Final Warning – Failure of Notify Change of Keeper

As is coherent that you haven’t told the DVLA that you no longer an owner of a means of transportation …..

Then blurb about a decision having been made but it can be overruled if I “contribute information that has not already been made handy to use” and a warning that I can be penalized 1,000 GBP if I don’t tell DVLA

The grammar and wording is quite ridiculous and that is most likely to be deliberate to ensure only the most trusting people reply and provide the personal information the scammers seek.

The link to click is a box labelled TELL DVLA NOW but it goes to com-serve.ru  so it’s a Russian website. There seems to be a big scamming industry in Russia these days.

This is just a common phishing scam message.

Don’t be caught out.
