3.) ODOT drivers license scam text
ODOT announced it has been made aware of suspicious text messages that claims to be from ODOT requesting customers to update their driver’s license information. ODOT does not issue driver licenses in Ohio. While the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles does issue driver licenses, the BMV is not requesting this information from anyone either.
