Vaccine - Fraud
The vaccine role out has started, and people are keen to get it to help protect themselves against coronavirus. There is a vast waiting list and when it is your turn you will be informed so that you can attend and be vaccinated. Unfortunately, there are now scams circulating that relate to the vaccine and these could be paying for a vaccine and it not taking place, receiving a fake notification letter so when you attend there is no vaccine which could affect your health. I have 4 examples of common scams that I would like to show you The NHS will never ask for you bank details The NHS will never ask you to pay for the vaccine as they are all free. The NHS will never knock at your door and invite you for a vaccine. If you are unable to leave your home to be vaccinate, then they will contact you prior to any visit to arrange a time and date. They will not turn up unannounced. The NHS will never ask you to take photographs of personal ID such as passports, driving licence or birth certificates and send them to the NHS. If you receive any of these, you should ignore them and report it. If you are unsure, you can contact us at Zebra Access and we are happy to help.
