The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) has warned drivers to be vigilant following reports of new scams in circulation.
Members of the public have been approached via emails, texts and telephone calls by representatives claiming to be from the DVLA. All forms of communication ask the recipient to confirm personal information and credit card details.
The scam emails contain a link to a mocked up DVLA website and asks people to enter their details online.
The DVLA has confirmed that they never send emails or text messages that contain website links to update personal and financial details.
The Cabinet Office’s Government Digital Service (GDS) is continuing to investigate ongoing reports.
