There have been reports of a new scam where a person receives a text saying they need to book a vaccination appointment and it takes them to a fake NHS form which then asks for their bank details to prove their identity.
Media reports suggest that this particular scam is targeted elderly and vulnerable people.
It is important to be alert to these types of scams and to remember that the NHS will never ask you to share your banking details. Genuine text messages from the UK Government will only come from UK_Gov and you will only ever be directed to GOV.UK/coronavirus.
If you have already shared banking details after having received a similar message, you should contact your bank.
