This was sent to my sister, from the very (un)convincing yypxwha@[telenet.be]
How did I know it was a fake?
Firstly, look at the email address it was sent from – that isn’t the DVLA
Secondly, it doesn’t address you by name, it just uses your email address
Thirdly, if you click on the link (please don’t) it takes you to https://2019.talantinua.com/modules/openid/tests/openid-test/bin/index.php. That definitely isn’t the web address for the DVLA.
By the time the email had been forwarded to me, none of my web browsers would let me access the site, but judging from the text in the email, they would have asked you to enter your bank account information.
If you think you might have accidentally given your bank info to these scammers, contact you bank immediately. Otherwise, delete this email and do not click on the link.
