Trading Standards- Covid-19 Vaccine Scam

Leicestershire Trading Standards have been made aware of a scam, whereby, members of the public receive a text message advising that they are eligible for a Covid-19 vaccine. They are then encouraged to provide various personal information.

The following is now posted on our Trading Standards Facebook page, please feel free to distribute as appropriate:

Criminals are taking advantage of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout through a convincing scam text to steal people's personal and financial details.

The text contains a link that leads to a convincing fake NHS website with an application form. It asks for your bank / card details in order to 'check identity'. The NHS will not ask for payment.

Please warn friends and family of this scam text.
