Delaware DOT and DMV issue COVID scam alert

Posted

The Delaware Department of Transportation said Monday it has received inquiries about the validity of a text message requiring recipients to “verify your COVID-19 vaccination status” with a link to click.

Department officials are emphasizing that it is not a communication from the Division of Motor Vehicles and should be ignored and deleted.

DMV does not send vaccination status notices via text message, nor is personal information such as driver’s license number, Social Security number or payment information requested in this manner. Officials say to report any such messages to local law enforcement.
