The Office of Motor Vehicles (OMV) is warning Louisiana residents about fraudulent text messages claiming to be from the “DMV.” Louisiana citizens are reporting they have received texts telling drivers they can receive money back from the “DMV” for "having a good record." Citizens should NOT click the link. The message has the potential to steal data or other personal information to commit identity theft or install malware onto the user’s device.
Anyone who receives a message like this should delete it right away. The Louisiana OMV will never ask customers to send sensitive personal information through text messages.
  • Exercise caution with all communications you receive.
  • Confirm the message was generated from a legitimate source.
  • Keep an eye out for signs of phishing (fraudulent emails/texts).
  • Click on links in an unsolicited message from an unverified source.
  • Send your personal information via text.
  • Post sensitive information online.
