Fake vaccination text

Alert message sent 07/01/2021 11:32:00

Information sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police


Please be wary of fake COVID-19 vaccine text alerts, the fake text alerts appear to be from the NHS stating that the recipient is eligible to apply for a vaccine and followed by a link - please do not click on the link - the link is a convincing fake NHS website which asks for personal and financial information. The NHS will never ask for your banking information.

Please be wary of other scams related to COVID-19 which may include:
  • Fake links claiming to take you to a Government website for a COVID-19 related payment
  • Offers of health supplements that will prevent you from becoming infected
  • Financial support offers that appear to be from your bank
  • Fines suggesting you have breached lockdown
If you have clicked and supplied your details please phone your bank/building society immediately on a telephone number from a reliable source (if any financial information has been passed) and report to Action Fraud via the website https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/ or by phoning 0300 123 2040.
If you have any concerns please email 101@dc.police.uk or phone 101.
Please pass this information on and consider displaying in public areas such as notice boards etc.
Thank you.
