We have been alerted to a current scam that we want to make our customers, colleagues and their families aware of to stay safe.
These campaigns variously claim to be from the UK Government, the NHS, Test and Trace, GP surgeries, pharmacies, or from other health organisations like the WHO. Typically, the content of these messages attempts to direct users to phishing sites or connect them to high-cost premium number services, although in some cases the messages contain false or misleading information about the coronavirus vaccines themselves.
Suspicious emails can be forwarded to the NCSC’s Suspicious Email Reporting Service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Spam SMS messages should be forwarded free of charge to the 7726 SMS reporting service.
