COVID VACCINATION SCAM

Vulnerable Britons are being targeted with fraudulent messages offering them access to coronavirus vaccinations, trading standards bosses have warned.

The Chartered Trading Standards Institute (CTSI) said that text messages had been sent out including links to fake NHS websites that asked recipients for bank details, supposedly for verification purposes.

Please be alert around scam text messages/cold calls telling you that you are eligible for a Covid vaccine, do not provide your payment details or any personal details in links attached. When your GP contacts you about the vaccine, they will not ask for payment!

Please see below for full details and examples of the text messages being sent.
