Latest Internet Email Scam

Monday, 28. February 2011

Hi, Graham Hill here, thank you so much for visiting my blog, I hope you learn a lot and as a result end up driving a great car. In order to do so you can get all the information you need by buying my book, An Insider Guide To Car Finance or use me to finance your next car. Happy driving.

There is another web scam going about as revealed by the DVLA. The email which includes a few spelling mistakes (bit of a giveaway) asks the recipient to click on a Department for Transport web address and fill in some details. It goes on to warn that if you fail to do so it will cause you to lose your drivers licence and you will have to re-take your test. The URL (web address) isn’t obviously a DVLA address but the template used for the site looks genuine and includes links to agency pages in the border. Whilst the DVLA have pointed out that this won’t affect drivers or their licences the Association of Chief Police Officers have warned that the information requested such as name, address, date of birth and licence number could be used for all sorts of criminal activities. The DVLA has confirmed that they never ask for details to be entered online via an email. Have you received one of these emails? By Graham Hill
