Coronavirus (COVID-19) scams – be extra vigilant

Coronavirus (COVID-19) scams – be extra vigilant

We understand that cruel scammers are trying to take advantage of people’s fears about the pandemic and so we are asking local people to be extra vigilant.

A fake NHS text message has been circulating around Calderdale, telling people they are eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine. 

The message link takes people through to a fake NHS website which asks for your personal details, along with your credit or debit card details.

This is a scam and you should delete the message.

When it is your turn to have a coronavirus vaccine, the NHS will ask you to attend an appointment. This could be at a nearby GP practice, a community pharmacy or at a community vaccination site.

We will contact you either by phonecall, letter or a text message. The NHS will never ask for payment for the vaccine, or for your bank details.

Genuine messages from the NHS are usually sent from ‘NHSNoReply’. If you get a suspicious text message about vaccinations from an unknown number, please delete it.
