Trading Standards is warning the public to be on their guard following reports that fraudsters are sending out fake texts offering a Covid-19 vaccine in an attempt to steal bank details.
The text offers a link to what police call an "extremely convincing" fake NHS website.O nce on the website people are asked to input their bank details to register for a vaccine.
The scam message reads 'we have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine' and then prompts you to click on a link for further information or to 'apply' for the vaccine.
If you receive a text or email that asks you to click on a link or for you to provide information, such as your name, credit card or bank details, delete it immediately.
Remember, the NHS will never ask for your payment details.
