Maryland Department of Transportation MDOT Spam Alert

Earlier this month, MDOT issued the following tweet:

“If you have received a text from “Maryland-MDot Urgent” addressing “MDot customer” with a link, please ignore the text. It is SPAM and has been reported to MDOT’s IT Department. DO NOT click on the link and DELETE the message.”

The agency also has the warning along the top of its website.

Spam messages can sometimes be connected to phishing scams which are used to collect sensitive information from the user.
