Private Detective Bournemouth Discuss Ways to Monitor and Control Email Scams

According to the article by Sophie Christie, published in The Telegraph on 26 November 2014: (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/personalfinance/11253194/Motorists-targeted-by-new-DVLA-scam-emails.html) there is an alarming rise in the level of scams that target motorists, tricking them to give their personal information to complete strangers. Fraudulent emails claiming to be from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA) are sent to motorists incorporating an online link which scammers use to gain access to the car users' bank information. The DVLA reported to being aware of the scamming emails, adding that the agency had "not sent out an email asking customers to update or verify their details." The series of motorist frauds is expected to spike over the coming year, as scammers hope to capitalise off the drivers' lack of knowledge. In 2015, the DVLA will continue the digitisation of motorists' records and paper licenses will be officially terminated. A source at the DVLA reported "Those who have an old style paper driving licence issued before the photocard was introduced in 1998, this change won't affect you, and you should keep your licence." However motorists should remember to renew invalid licenses, otherwise they could be charged a £1,000 fine. Last month, the DVLA substituted the paper tax disc for an automated system. It has been reported that similar DVLA-fronted scams arose when the changes to tax discs were made, the fraudsters taking advantage of any changes the DVLA makes to scam off motorists' lack of awareness.
