Fenland people warned over vaccine scammers
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Against Scams Partnership (CAPASP) are warning residents to watch out for fraudulent text messages from scammers posing as the NHS, claiming to offer Covid vaccines.
Scammers have been active throughout the pandemic, exploiting the resultant fear and confusion for their own gain.
This recent scam has seen residents being sent a text message which includes a blue link, which takes them to a fake webpage with NHS branding. The resident is then asked to ‘confirm ownership of address’ by providing their bank details.
