10 past 3 am this morning I had a text, saying
"You have been near someone positive, book a Covid test at................"

Another scam to be warned about.
I have not been out, as I have not been too well all of July. Nor have I been near anyone, except for my husband, who also has not been out, and my niece who visits, and she always takes a Covid flow test before coming.
Also do they really think we believe the NHS are working at 3.10am, sending out these messages??? Be warned.

Thanks for the warning--I'm sure that scam will arrive here at some point....

Hi Keeper smile.png

I had a similar text a few weeks ago, I did post a copy of it here to warn people.

The text I received was not from NHS and it arrived late at night.

Hope you feel better soon.

In Sandra's name we must follow the rules of lockdown and social distancing to get through this nightmare.

I woke up to an e mail on i pad this morning not addressed to anyone in the household saying it was from ‘support’ and to click here to hear an important voicemail. There was a phone number with it. As is wasn’t addressed to anyone I was suspicious and looked it up on a checking site. Hundreds of people had checked it out and it was assumed to be a scam. Do be careful.
