Covid-19 vaccine scam advice

Published: 08 January 2021

Please be wary of fake COVID-19 vaccine text alerts, the fake text alerts appear to be from the NHS stating that the recipient is eligible to apply for a vaccine and followed by a link - please do not click on the link - the link is a convincing fake NHS website which asks for personal and financial information. The NHS will never ask for your banking information.

Please be wary of other scams related to COVID-19 which may include:
• Fake links claiming to take you to a Government website for a COVID-19 related payment
• Offers of health supplements that will prevent you from becoming infected
• Financial support offers that appear to be from your bank
• Fines suggesting you have breached lockdown
