There is concern about a new scam using texts and emails, which has been reported in the media.
A person receives a text saying they need to book a vaccination appointment via a link, which takes them to a fake NHS form asking for their bank details to prove their identity.
There is concern that those most in need of vaccine may be most vulnerable to such manipulation.
If you are speaking with your tenants please reassure them that their bank info would never be requested for any NHS vaccine related service.
There is a texting scam leaflet you can download from the NHS Counter Fraud Authority website: https://cfa.nhs.uk/resources/downloads/fraud-awareness/covid-19/COVID-19_SMS_and_Text_Message_Scams.pdf
