Scam alert: text message claiming to be ADOT isn’t real

Never click on suspicious links in texts and emails

PHOENIX – Many Arizonans have reported receiving a scam text about their driver license needing to be updated.

This text did not come from the Arizona Department of Transportation and is a phony attempt to get people to hand over their personal identifying information. Do not open this text or any web address associated with it. This is a scam and you should never click on unsolicited or suspicious links in texts or emails.

The only ADOT website customers should conduct personal business on is AZMVDNow.gov or ServiceArizona.com

If anyone believes they have been victimized by this scam, the Arizona Attorney General's Office recommends either contacting local law enforcement on a non-emergency line or filing a criminal complaint with the Arizona Attorney General.

ADOT is working with the Arizona Department of Administration and law enforcement in an effort to protect our customers.
