Cambridgeshire police warn of fraudsters sending fake texts about Covid-19 vaccinations
Cambridgeshire police have warned that fraudsters are preying on people’s desire to receive a Covid-19 vaccination by sending fake texts.
The force shared an example of text that read: “NHS: We have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine. For more information and to apply, follow here….”
A website for a fake application form follows.
Police said: “Once you click the link, it asks for ‘proof of ownership of address’ in the form of your sort code and a bank card number.
“This is a scam, do not share your details.”
The NHS is contacting people when it is their turn to receive one of the two approved Covid-19 vaccines. But it will not ask for your bank details.
