WYDOT warns of scam

The Wyoming Department of Transportation has been alerted to a potential phishing scam involving driver licenses in the state. The scammers are sending text messages that seemingly give a final notice about a “license waiver validation” and include a link to a third-party website to “avert a suspension.”

Sometimes reminder texts with deadlines are sent as well. The scammer’s website has been designed to look like a WYDOT website.  WYDOT points out that the department does not send text messages of that nature and does not seek personal information in this manner. Those who receive a text message like this one should avoid opening the link and giving personal information.
