Test and Trace SCAMS

A WARNING has been issued about fake text messages claiming to be from the government’s coronavirus test and trace service, which asks people to submit financial details. Genuine text messages and emails for the test and trace service will come from the NHS and calls from 0300 013 5000 and the only website people will be asked to access is https://contact-tracing.phe.gov.uk.  AT NO POINT will people be asked for their bank details to pay for a test.  Further information can be found via these links :
