The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet is warning residents of a text message scam.

Officials say a text phishing attempt was reported impersonating a state agency.

The text message includes a link and the sender is listed as "KYDOT."

KYTC says the text message is not from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, and recipients are warned not to click the link that asks for personal information.

The Cabinet does not send text messages that solicit personal information.

Victims who have submitted any personal information are advised to visit the Kentucky Office of the Attorney General website to follow their guidance concerning potential identity theft.
