Beware fake NHS COVID-19 vaccine scam

We are indebted to Kathleen Fedouloff (of ADCA) for bringing this to our attention, as originally identified by Which Consumer Association.

This will surely not be the only case of scammers and other criminals trying to take advantage of people's concern about COVID-19 and getting the vaccination.

The Scam

You get a message purporting to be from the NHS, with a link to follow to something like uk-application-form.com.

This is a very convincing looking NHS site which suggests that you are now in line for a vaccination and asks you to complete details.

In the middle of a number of other questions, it asks for bank details "to check identity".

This is a scam, simply designed to get the bank details from you.

So beware – there will be other similar scams no doubt.
