Coronavirus Scams

These scam are already starting to circulate both via email and text message with victims falling foul of the worries and concerns over coronavirus. 50% of these reported have been attempts to purchase protective face masks from fraudulent sellers but we have also seen coronavirus-themed phishing emails purporting to be from HMRC with tax refunds available and from World Health organisations claiming to be able to provide the recipient with a list of coronavirus infected people in their area. The links lead to malicious websites or false payment pages.

If you are unsure of anything then check with the official provider before clicking on any links or contact us with details and we can provide appropriate advice
