Covid Vaccine Passport Scam

Alert message sent 22/06/2021 16:45:00

Information sent on behalf of Neighbourhood Watch


Dear Citizen

We have been made aware of a Covid Vaccine Passport scam email going around that purports to be from the NHS and informs recipients that they can apply for their “Digital Coronavirus Passports”

Clicking on the link within the email, takes you to a convincing but fake NHS website that asks for personal and payment details. (for an admin fee)

The website has since been taken down, but in case similar emails/websites appear can you please circulate the attached alert to your residents, members, groups and mailing lists.

And just to reiterate, your vaccination status is obtained FREE through the NHS App, website or by calling the NHS on 119.

More information can be found on the gov.uk website;

Please note that any Phishing scams can be reported to  SERS (Suspicious Email Reporting Service):  report@phishing.gov.uk

Best wishes
