Be Aware – NHS Vaccine Scams

Be aware this is a scam  

Bath & North East Somerset Council’s Trading Standards team received a complaint from a consumer this week who had received a text message from +44 7943 028442 stating:

“NHS: We have identified that your are eligible for your vaccine. For more information and to apply, follow here” 

Please note the incorrect use of ‘your’ instead of ‘you’.
The complainant advised when he followed the link it took him to a copy of an NHS website and also provided links to the real NHS website. On the final page personal information was requested including name, date of birth, address, a payment card (to check billing) and proof of address. There was also a spelling mistake.
