KYTC Warns of Text Scam
The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is warning the state about a text phishing scam.
In the text, someone impersonates a state agency ("KYDOT") and sends a message that includes a link.
The message is not from KYTC and recipients are warned not to click the link that asks for personal information.
KYTC said in a news release that it does not send text messages soliciting personal information.
Victims who have submitted any personal information are advised to visit the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General website, ag.ky.gov, to follow their guidance concerning potential identity theft.
