A fake NHS text has been circulating telling people they’re eligible to apply for the Covid-19 vaccine. The wording is as follows: ‘we have identified that your are eligible to apply for your vaccine’. It then advises you to follow a link to get more information and ‘apply’.
This URL takes you through to a very convincing fake NHS website that asks for your personal details – including bank and bank card details to check your identity.
A genuine NHS site would never ask for your personal and bank details and would never ask you to press a button on your keypad. Please do not fall for this scam. You do not pay for your vaccine.
