7/10/2014: The Department of Transport (DoT) has been made aware of an email scam potentially targeting its customers.
The fraudulent email is claiming to be from PayPal and asks recipients to renew their driver's licence by following a link provided.
Customers are then asked to provide their name, address, mother's maiden name and credit card details. DoT advises customers not to respond to any email claiming to be from PayPal that asks for personal details. DoT does not use PayPal for payments and never asks customers for their personal details via email.
If you receive an email claiming to be from PayPal regarding renewing your driver's licence, please alert the Department of Commerce.
