COVID Vaccine Fake Text Scam

Alert message sent 06/01/2021 23:00:00

Information sent on behalf of Cumbria Neighbourhood Watch


The following scam is but one of many that will invariable be circulated in the near future.

We have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the new vaccine and to click on the link in the text message.  The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.
 
The details asked for:
Name
Address
Date of birth
Proof of address
Card payment details
 
With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the roll out to so many people.

Please share this with all your contacts etc.

Kind regards
