The Idaho Transportation Department issued a warning Tuesday after a text message phishing scam stating the Idaho Division of Motor Vehicles (DMV) is providing refund payments is circulating. ITD says this is happening in other states, not just in Idaho.

“The DMV does not communicate via text messaging,” said DMV Administrator Alberto Gonzalez. "Delete this message to protect your personal information should you receive it.”
