Vaccine Fraud


Kent Fraud Alert System Vaccine scams. Please be aware of fraudsters sending out emails and texts offering vaccines.


The following is an example of such a message that was received by a Kent resident in last couple of days –


“NHS: We have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine. For more information and to apply, follow here:' (there is a link provided)


The link takes you to a page with an official looking NHS heading on a blue background & headed '


We need to prove ownership of address ' Please get a debit / credit card ready, you will need Sort Code – Account Number – Long card number. We use this to verify billing address with the bank No payments are made during verification [ There is a ' continue ' box. ]”


If you receive this or anything similar, it is a scam.


The NHS will never ask you for account details. PIN numbers etc. If you receive any messages like this, then please report to Action Fraud either online at – https://www.actionfraud.police.uk/reporting-fraud-and-cyber-crime
