WYDOT Warns of “License Exemption Validation” SMS Scam
If you receive an SMS asking you to validate your driver’s license with the Wyoming Department of Transportation, don’t be fooled.
WYDOT says the crooks are sending texts that apparently give final notice on a “license waiver validation” and include a link to a third-party website to “avoid suspension.”
“The scammer’s website was designed to look like a WYDOT website,” WYDOT said on his Facebook page. “Sometimes reminder text messages with deadlines are also sent.”
“WYDOT will not send or send text messages of this nature and does not seek personal information in this manner,” the agency added. “If you receive a text message like this, please avoid opening the link and giving out your personal information.”
WYDOT encourages anyone with questions or concerns to contact their local Driving Services office.
