North Yorkshire Community Messaging – COVID vaccination scam

Flaxton Parish Council would like to draw your attention to the below message which has been received from North Yorkshire Community Messaging

On 27th January 2021 I advised of an email ‘doing the rounds’ which appeared to be from the NHS inviting the recipient to register for a Covid vaccination. This was a ‘phishing’ email which asked you to input your personal details, security information and more importantly your bank and card details. The emailed claimed that your bank details were necessary to verify your identity. North Yorkshire Police have been notified  of a similar email which I have replicated below.

Whereas this is different to the email circulated last week, the intention of the fraudsters is the same; to obtain your personal and bank details.

Please remember the Covid 19 vaccination is free and you will not be asked for payment. The NHS will never ask for your bank details.

If you receive such emails you can forward them to  and then delete from your inbox.

Please pass this message on to friends/family etc
