Dear Colleagues
 
Please be aware of an alert relating to a COVID vaccination scam. Please circulate within your organisation and networks to raise awareness amongst service users, carers and the general public.  
 
COVID Vaccination Scam Alert
There have been reports of a new scam where a person receives a text saying they need to book a vaccination appointment and it takes them to a fake NHS form which then asks for their bank details to prove their identity. 
 
The NHS will never ask for a person’s banking information so please do not provide as it will be a scam   
 
There is a texting scam leaflet you can download here: https://cfa.nhs.uk/resources/downloads/fraud-awareness/covid-19/COVID-19_SMS_and_Text_Message_Scams.pdf
 
The scam has been reported in the media here: https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/science-technology/1378158/NHS-Covid-19-Vaccination-Vaccine-Appointment-Pfizer-BioNTech-Text-Scam-How-To-Avoid
 
 
Many thanks
 
Best wishes
 
Jane
 
Administration Officer – Hampshire Safeguarding Adults Board
