Which? response as NHS warns about scam Covid test texts

Jenny Ross, Which? Money Editor, said:

“It’s appalling that fraudsters are sending fake NHS texts urging people to order Covid tests in an attempt to steal their money and personal information – yet sadly this has been a recurring scam since the pandemic first started.

“People should be on high alert for scams of this kind. While the NHS does contact people via text in some cases, it will never ask you for bank details.”
