Beware of Covid pass fraud.
Criminals are using the NHS Covid Pass as a way to target the public by convincing them to hand over money, financial details and personal information.
Fraudsters are sending imitation text messages, emails and making phone calls pretending to be from the NHS and offering fake vaccine certificates for sale online and through social media.
Remember! The NHS App is FREE, the NHS Covid Pass is FREE and the NHS will NEVER ask for payment or any financial details.
If you receive a call you suspect to be fraudulent, hang up. If you are suspicious about an email, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are suspicious about a text message, forward it to 7726, which is free-of-charge.
If you think you may be a victim of fraud, you can report it to us online through our digital 101 system or call us on 101. Visit www.essex.police.uk/digital101 to find out more.
