Trading standards have advised us of a scam in relation to the Covid 19 vaccine.
People are being sent a text message claiming to be from the NHS which informs the recipient “we have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine”. The message ends with a link to a website mocked up to look like a legitimate NHS platform. The website requests personal details, including name, address and banking details. The NHS will never ask for bank details, passwords or pin numbers and these requests should serve as instant red flags.
The vaccine brings us hope for an end to the pandemic and lockdowns, but there are some out there that only want to create even further misery by seeking to defraud.
