Kingston, NY – Ulster County Clerk Nina Postupack warns residents of a new text messaging scam indicating changes to personal DMV records. The messages appear to be from the NYS DMV and may include a payment or repayment request. The message asks the recipient to click a link to verify the changes and/or make a payment.  Anyone who received such a text message should delete it right away.

County Clerk Postupack urges all Ulster County residents to use caution when receiving emails or text messages from unfamiliar sources, even if they look official.  Don’t click on links or send any personal information.
