Beware Of More COVID Scams – Whittlesey Has Had It..!

Covid Grant Text Scam

One of our supporters has kindly shared a recent scam text message they received so that we can alert others. The text claims to be from UK government and states ‘Records show that you are eligible for a COVID-19 grant. To proceed, please complete the form here:…’ and provides a link to give your details.

Whilst there is genuine financial support available from government to people who lose income as a result of not being able to work, this is not it. The link in this text is designed to steal personal and banking information under the guise of an application for the grant award.

Please be careful – do not click on any links in unsolicited texts or e-mails and please warn others.
