COVID-19 Vaccine Scam Warning

Alert message sent 05/01/2021 15:11:00

Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary


It appears that another scam is circulating relating to Covid-19

A fake NHS text has recently been circulating advising people that they’re eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine. It states that you have been identified as being eligible to apply for the vaccine and includes a link to follow for more information and to apply. The website that this link leads to is a fake NHS website that looks extremely convincing. It asks for personal details as well as bank details to ‘check your identity’.
The NHS will never ask you to provide these details.

Currently, the Covid vaccine is being offered to those most at risk from coronavirus. More information on how you will be contacted can be found at: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/coronavirus-vaccine/
