A DANGEROUS DVLA text scam is currently circulating in the UK.

A warning was shared about a scam text message claiming to be from the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency, which notifies drivers about a vehicle tax recalculation.

The message says: "We have recalculated your vehicle tax.

"You are owed £48.84 due to overpayment."

It then gives consumers a link to click on to claim their refund, which would take them to a fake website.
