Vaccine Scam Alert
Birling Parish Council
Vaccine scam alert
With the start of the roll out of vaccines for Covid-19, the force is aware this will present opportunities for fraudsters to commit fraud by contacting people by telephone, text, email and cold calling at their homes to offer the vaccine in return for a fee.
Any such contact will be a scam – people who receive the vaccine will not be required to:
- pay for it
- supply personal data/banking details
- provide PIN numbers.
Remember, never click on any links requesting personal data/banking details.
Please encourage the public to report suspicious instances to Action Fraud. If they feel they may have fallen victim to this type of scam already, then please advise them to contact their bank and also report it via 101.
