COVID Vaccination scams
In the last week of 2020, Action Fraud received 57 reports from members of the public who had been sent text messages claiming to be from the NHS, offering them the opportunity to sign up for coronavirus vaccinations. The texts asked the recipients to click on a link which took them to an online form where they were prompted to input personal and financial details. In some cases the online form looked very similar to the real NHS website. MIAA Fraud Alert #11 included an example of such a text. In the UK, coronavirus vaccinations are only available via the National Health Services.
