BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana’s Office of Motor Vehicles is warning state residents that scammers are trying to get personal information with text messages.

It says those messages claim that people can collect money from the office through an internet link.

A news release sent Thursday notes that the office’s online transactions are all through its secure website, www.expresslane.org. It says it will never ask for sensitive personal information through text messages.

The Office also encourages people to report suspicious or criminal activity through the Louisiana State Police website, www.lsp.org.
