Police would like to make you aware of the following scam which has occurred over a wide area.
Covid-19 Vaccine Scam
Users have been sent a text purporting to be from a NHS body or similar informing the user that they are entitled to a COVID-19 vaccination. They are then invited to click on a link within the text message that takes them to a web page.
This web page will ask for personal details including ” card payment details”
By supplying this information personal bank accounts are being raided by the scammers.
This is a very convincing text purporting to be from the NHS.
Any genuine invitation from your GP or other NHS body for the COVID-19 vaccination will NOT ask for any payment details.
Stay Safe, Stay Home ,Stay Well and beware of this Scam
