Car tax refund

Received a second text today from DVLA, one a couple weeks ago, with regards to them owing me a refund. The only vehicle I have taken off the road was my MK for the winter for which I was sent a refund. They maintain they owe me 48.84 and when you go to the link they ask for bank details, password words, e mail address, mother's maiden name etc. Has anyone else received what appears to be a scam text?

scam.

When I SORNed a bike recently the website just said that if I am owed any money it will be sent to me.

I heard nothing until a cheque came through the door. No contact since.





Track days ARE the best thing since sliced bread, until I get a supercharger that is!

Rollover the link and write down the link and psot it here. Almost 99% a scam but the link showing will confirm....

I thought they would refund to the account that had paid in the first place, unless a cheque was requested
I certainly suspect a scam; if asking for those details, though I am no quite sure how they get the data for the 'victim'
EDIT
I was wrong, they send a cheque payable to the account that had paid in the first place, so more certainly a scam.
I think reporting it via
http://www.actionfraud.police.uk/report_fraud
is appropriate

A scam!

Don't reply to it and certainly don't give out any details whatsoever.

If you're still concerned then phone the DVLA (using a number from their website) and speak to them about it.
