Beware everyone of a new crafty email scam going round. We’ve had a few customers report the receipt of an email from DVLA advising that you have an unpaid penalty. Further in the email you’re instructed to click on a link in order to complete a form advising that you’re not liable for the penalty (clever).
BEWARE – clicking on that link you will get infected by the Ransomeware Virus and your documents, pictures and music will be encrypted and ultimately lost (unless you have a backup in place).
We’ve attached a screenshot so you can see what the email looks like (it’s safe to click on the image).
Please let us know if you’ve received similar, so we can post it and protect potential victims.
