COVID-19 Vaccine Scam
We have been made aware of a new text message scam that is being circulated. A message is sent seemingly from the NHS saying that you are now eligible to apply for the new vaccine and to click on the link to apply. If clicked the link will take you to a fake NHS webpage that asks for your personal details. If you receive the below text please DO NOT click on the link.
ï‚· DO NOT click on links in unknown texts - always check it first.
ï‚· NEVER give out your personal details.
ï‚· Cold calls regarding the vaccine are also beginning to take place.
Top 4 text message scams:
1. Fake URL links claiming to link to GOV.UK website to claim supposed COVID-19 related payment.
2. Lockdown fines suggesting you have breached lockdown.
3. Offers of health supplements that will prevent you becoming infected.
4. Financial support offers that appear to be from your bank.
If you, or anyone you know, has been affected by any of these scams, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or by visiting www.actionfraud.police.uk.
