The DGT clarifies the formulas to notify the fines and avoid being scammed

The scam returns where you are alerted to different false notifications of unpaid fines from the General Directorate of Traffic, and you should only be clear about one thing: never open this type of email. The General Directorate of Traffic is getting serious and is currently alerting of different false notifications that hundreds of users are receiving to pay alleged fines. Phishing is one of the main methods used by cybercriminals to deceive users, posing as different companies or public bodies so that the user accesses a page, enters their data and even makes a payment. One of the most common scams are those related to unpaid fines from the Directorate General of Traffic and that many users are currently receiving in their emails. 🛑The #DGT does not send this type of notification. Sanctions are communicated only by post and Electronic Road Address. If you receive an email like these or similar, do not bite, delete it directly DGT will never issue you a fine by email, but only through certified postal mail or through an Electronic Road Address. This means that from now on never pay attention to an email of this type since it is a scam. In the recent scam attached by the official DGT account on Twitter, it can be seen that the message uses the same DGT logo together with that of the Government of Spain to try to deceive the user. This type of message is accompanied by a link that takes us to a page where either our computer is hijacked or we are asked to make an online payment. Can you tell a fake email from a real one? We explain the main signs to avoid being scammed online through an email. Not only these types of scams are related to the DGT, but also to any other company of some importance such as banks or even entertainment platforms. Basically, you must be aware of carrying out all the procedures through the official pages of the organizations or in person, and never through an email link that may have been sent by a cybercriminal.
