Portland, Oregon (KOIN) – The Oregon DMV warned Oregon residents to pay attention to text messages from fraudsters claiming refunds, according to a press release Wednesday.

Fraudsters are trying to get payment information from Oregons by pretending to be a DMV and sending a text indicating that the recipient has a refund.

The DMV urged those who received these texts to delete the message without clicking the link.
