Warning Regarding Fake Covid19 Vaccine Text Messages

Please be aware of the below type of scam text message circulating regarding the new Covid19 vaccines.

Sadly fraudsters don’t care about who they take advantage of – and the fear around the Covid19 pandemic is no exception.

PLEASE, PLEASE share this warning to make others aware.

NHS will NEVER require you to any give financial details. The vaccine through NHS is a free service, there are no charges. #DontBeDuped

REMEMBER the golden rule! NEVER click on links in texts or emails.
