The new scam denounced by the DGT is about false alerts of expired driving licenses

We could say that of: from the creators of mail of the false traffic ticket, arrives the new scam denounced by the DGT that now goes from false alerts of expired driving licenses.

Again has been Twitter the channel chosen by the General Directorate of Traffic to publicize a scam. Those responsible for the social networks of Traffic warn all their followers of a new case phishing (Anglicism used to identify scams on the Internet).

On this occasion, the DGT once again sees its identity supplanted in the sending of electric mails in which the holders are warned that their driving license has expired. To avoid problems, they ask drivers to send documentation:

Alert for the expiration of the driving license

With this new scam, the DGT warns that drivers can receive two false emails. In addition to the one that warns the driver that he has a (false) fine that he must pay, for which he invites him to enter a link; now it seems that the hackers they are spreading another email in which they report to drivers that their driving license has expired.

Faced with this situation and to prevent the expiration of the license from posing a problem, they ask the license holder to be responsible for the mail with a series of documentation: photograph of the DNI, photograph of the driving license and selfie (The selfie is literal).

From the DGT they ask that these e-mails not be answered and that the receiver delete them without replying, forwarding or puncture in any link. In case of doing so, it seems that a malware that can steal all the personal data of the computer, including the passwords that it has stored in the memory.
