Just passing on a Government warning about the latest e-mail scam. This one pretends to be from the DVLA and asks for details of your driving licence. Advice is to delete it.
The warning starts :-
DVLA scam email warning

    * Published: Tuesday, 1 February 2011

Watch out for emails claiming to be from DVLA asking you to verify your driving licence details via an online link – it's a scam. DVLA has not sent any such email, so if you get one delete it immediately.
Scam phishing email

The email appears to be an attempt to trick drivers into providing personal details.

If you get the email below, do not respond to it and delete it immediately.



A lionk to the full official warning :-

Quack!
Geoff.

Interesting points about this.

1. The US has apparently taken over the DVLA, and is updating our licenses (instead of licences).

2. The classic scammer's error "there" instead of "their".

3. ""Drivers that refuses to upgrade his or her.........""   Que?

4. "Inconviniences". Something, apparently, affecting the wine.

I saw this spelling this morning, on an ATM, and wondered why the author of the note thought that the 'ee' sound should be represented by the letter i.
