Latest text scam prompts warning from DPH, DelDOT

Latest vaccine scam going around Delaware.

Delaware’s Division of Public Health and DelDOT is warning residents about a scam text message that is going around, related to vaccination validation.

TV Delmarva obtained a screen shot of the purported scam text, where the text directs receivers to input their license at a link to what appears to be the Department’s website.

DPH says if you get this text or ones like it, delete it and do not respond. It’s a phishing scam, where fraudsters look to get personal information from unsuspecting victims.

DPH reminds residents that it will never ask for private information such as Social Security number or driver’s license number. If you receive such a message, do not respond and report it to the Delaware Department of Justice’s Fraud and Consumer Protection Unit at 302-577-8600.
