I have received an email from the DVLA which is on an unsecured platform. It looks all right but I am suspicious because I don’t have an online account with them and have not requested paperless transactions. My car tax is not due yet so I am wondering if this is a scam. Anyone else had this?

Yes I did this morning and I don’t even have a car.
