The emails are becoming more and more 'convincing' to some people. I have spoken to the REAL DVLA this afternoon who are aware of the constant bombardment. I know that many of us simply ignore these emails and delete them straight away. If any of you have friends or families that perhaps are not so computer 'savvy', perhaps show them this article incase one pops up in their email inbox?
