Text message scam from resident to raise awareness
“Last night I received a text message supposedly from the NHS saying that I had been in close contact with a confirmed Omicron case. It said I must click a link to book a PCR test. I rang 119 to query it, and they said it was a possible scam and to forward the message to 7726, which I have done so.”

Phone call scam from resident

A resident has received several phone calls over recent weeks from a company claiming to be called “Home Care”. They claim that the residents are owed a refund of £119 and request bank details to pay it. The number they call from is 01234 43****. Please never give your bank details to anyone over the phone. Just put the phone down.
Thank you for your time and take care,
