Please see the following information received from Leicestershire County Council Trading Standards Service:

!! Scam alert – Covid-19 vaccine scam text !!

Criminals are taking advantage of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout through a convincing scam text to steal people's personal and financial details. The text contains a link that leads to a convincing fake NHS website with an application form. It asks for your bank / card details in order to 'check identity'. The NHS will not ask for payment.

Please warn friends and family of this scam text.
