Throughout the pandemic, some fraudsters have been trying to exploit coronavirus as an opportunity for financial crime.
Now that vaccines are available, they’re sending bogus messages claiming to offer the chance to apply for a coronavirus jab.
These are usually text messages which ask you to confirm your personal and financial details through a website given in a link. Some fraudsters are also trying the same scam with automated phone calls.
The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine. It will also never ask for payment or for your bank details.
Do not visit any of these sites or give any information. Please continue to follow official government advice.
If you’ve fallen victim to this scam, contact your Bank using the number on the back of your card.
