Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a nice break.
As Covid-19 vaccinations are now taking place in the UK, the scammers have of course jumped on the bandwagon and are trying to get people to pay for a spoof vaccine – the proper vaccine is FREE so this is definitely a scam. Please see below information from Humberside Police and be mindful of this scam text message which takes you to a website that asks you to input your bank details.

Some people have also had telephone calls offering them a vaccine for a price. This again is a scam, your Doctor’s surgery are the ones who will contact you re a FREE vaccine at the point that your priority group is eligible to receive it.
Please feel free to share this information widely and assure your learners, family and friends are not taken in by these cruel scams.
