COVID-19 vaccination phishing SMS text messages

Covid-19 vaccine fraud

There has been an increasing trend of COVID-19 phishing and SMS text message scams.

There are currently five key trends:

  • Fake URL links claiming to redirect you to GOV.UK website to claim relief payments.
  • Lockdown fines suggesting you have breached government regulations.
  • Offers of health supplements that will prevent you from being infected.
  • Financial support that appears to be from your bank.
  • Fake text messages claiming to be from the NHS advising individuals that they are eligible to apply for vaccine, but requiring sensitive data such as financial information to make a payment.
