Criminals have been using fake emails and text messages about COVID-19 vaccination to try to gain access to people's financial information.
COVID-19 vaccination is free from the NHS. We will not ask for your financial information.
If you receive a suspicious email, which you are not quite sure about, forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS) at email@example.com
If you receive a suspicious text message this can be forwarded to 7726 (these are the numbers that spell out the word SPAM on your key pad). This free-of-charge short code enables your provider to investigate the origin of the text and take action, if found to be malicious.
Dyfed Powys Police advises everyone to ALWAYS:
Do not click on links or attachments in unexpected or suspicious texts or emails.
Confirm requests are genuine by using a known number or email address to contact organisations directly.
Always check the URL of a website.
More information about COVID-19 vaccination in Powys is available from our COVID-19 vaccination web pages.
