Fraud description:

You see an offer that seems to come from a traffic school or the Swedish Transport Agency on social media, where you are offered a driver's license without the requirement for a degree or an approved theory test if you pay a certain amount of money to the specified wallet address or addresses for cryptocurrency.


The Swedish Transport Agency warns of fraud and attempted fraud in its name at https://transportstyrelsen.se/sv/Nyhetsarkiv/2020/ytterligere-bedrageriforsok-i-transportstyrelsens-namn/.

The offer is false, as such authorization is never issued without approved driving and theory tests in Sweden, regardless of driving license class, and Safello is not a payment service.

Neither can you pay for ID documentation, vaccination certificates or other official documents in Sweden.

How to prevent this type of fraud:

Always report fraud and attempted fraud to the police.

Never put financial means in a cryptocurrency wallet that is not personally controlled by you, and make sure that you are the only one who has access to its private key.
