My mum when she was 82 googled about applying for an OAP renewal of my Dad's driving licence. The first thing that appeared on her computer search was a
"apply for your license here"
So she did at a cost of about £80, it's actually free for over 70's.
The service she paid for consisted of the scamming company sending her an application in the post with an envelope to send to the DVLA with a second class stamp on it.
I believe these companies still exist but I've just tried on my iPhone and it seems to filter them out.
I did send the company a threatening letter saying we were going to take legal action against them but my Mum passed away so I just let it go, I was livid about her being scammed, absolute wankers.
Yep. Very common scam. Used to be a variation of it with the EHIC, despite it being free to all applicants.
