(WFRV) – Wisconsin residents are getting text messages from scammers asking for personal information with the threat of suspending licenses.
According to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation (WisDOT), scammers are targeting Wisconsin DMV customers with fake texts. The texts are asking for people to confirm personal information and threatening that if the information is not given, their license could get suspended.
Included in the text is a link to a form, which the scammers are hoping the targets click on and provide personal information.
The WisDOT wanted to remind people not to click on links that are embedded in unsolicited or unexpected text messages.
There was also a similar scam going around asking targets to purchase shirts from local fire departments. Multiple fire departments said that it was fake, and they would never send text messages regarding fundraisers or t-shirts.
