SCAM MOBILE MESSAGES

It has been reported that people are receiving the following mobile phone messages ( see picture below) As always do not click on any links and delete the message as this is a scam.

Another Mobile Scam

A timely reminder from one of our NHW supporters about the continuing DVLA text scam offering a refund, please copy of text received below.

The DVLA would never text you in this way asking for you to click on a link, so if you get these, please do not click on the link and just delete.

The link is to obtain your personal data/bank account details etc.

If you ever bet any unsolicited text messages or emails offering refunds etc. or promises of monies or threats of fines asking you to click on a link, do not do it.

Remember my ABC message….Never ASSUME or BELIEVE that something is genuine, ALWAYS CONFIRM it is genuine by contacting a trusted source or failing this, speak to a family member or friend.

Finally, could you report any scams where possible to Action Fraud.
