Advice about coronavirus scams

We have been made aware that there is a high rate of reports from online scams during the coronavirus pandemic. Please be vigilant for anything unusual you may see on social media platforms, emails, text or WhatsApp messages, fake websites and even phone calls. 

To help members of the public protect themselves from becoming a victim of fraud, Cifas, the UK’s fraud prevention service, is advising: 

  • Be sceptical if you receive an email, text or WhatsApp message about the Coronavirus, and never click on any attachments or links 
  • Never provide personal data such as your full name, address and date of birth – scammers can use this information to steal your identity 
  • Don’t allow yourself to be pressured into donating money, and never make donations by cash or gift card, or send money through transfer agents such as Western Union or Moneygram 
  • If you think you’ve been the victim of a scam, then speak to your bank immediately and report any fraud to Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040
