Replacement licences for victims of e-mail scam

4:17 pm on 21 October 2010

The Transport Agency has issued five replacement driver's licences to people who have fallen victim to an e-mail scam.

The e-mails ask people to log on to a counterfeit agency website and provide their driver's licence and credit card details.

The agency's spokesperson, Andy Knackstedt, warns anyone who has passed on their details to cancel their licence immediately.

The agency will waive the normal fee of $38.20 and provide a replacement licence at no charge to those affected, he says.
