Fake Text regarding Covid-19 Vaccines

Dear Watch Member,

Today, we have been alerted to a highly believable scam which starts with a text message and advises the user that they are eligible to apply for the vaccine and to click on the link in the message. The user is then led to a webpage, which looks very convincing and asks them to complete some details, in order for them to be able to apply for the vaccine.

The details asked for are:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Proof of address
  • Card payment details

With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue, as fraudsters continue to take advantage of the rollout to primarily vulnerable people.
