      If you gave date on card or number off back - contact bank urgently.

  • February 14, 2022 at 3:45 AM by an anonymous user from: City of London, London, England, United Kingdom

    • January 31, 2022 at 2:45 PM by info

      Contact your bank for help because the scammers will attempt to use your card fraudulently.

  • January 17, 2022 at 4:42 PM by an anonymous user from: Digbeth, Birmingham, England, United Kingdom

    I've recieved yet another variation today:

    NHS: Someone who came into contact with you has tested positive for omicron, please order your test kit here visit: https://nhs.omicron-order-test-2344.com/

    The website impersonates the style of official NHS website and attempts to take credit card details.

    • January 31, 2022 at 1:15 AM by an anonymous user from: Hatfield, England, United Kingdom

      Another variation: nhs-omicron-test.com

      • January 31, 2022 at 8:57 AM by an anonymous user from: Martlesham Heath, Ipswich, England, United Kingdom

        I got one today

        hxxps://nhs-omicron-pcr.com/

    • January 24, 2022 at 5:23 PM by an anonymous user from: Reading, England, United Kingdom

      It is difficult to know what is legitimate. Received a message about contact with a person with omicron. Site is https://nhs-pcrtest.com That seems like the official site. Then a couple of Web pages in, it says we will take 1 penny from your credit/debit card (once you give us those details) To verify who you are. It mirrors the NHS site perfectly and may indeed be the official nhs site. Does anyone know if it is legit? Thanks for any help you can give.

      • January 24, 2022 at 7:09 PM by info

        I do not trust the website. Go to https://www.nhs.uk/

  • January 13, 2022 at 11:31 AM by an anonymous user from: London, England, United Kingdom

    Just received a variation on this:

    NHS: You have been around a confirmed Omicron case. You must order a PCR testing kit or manage your vaccine urgently here: https://nhs-covidtestkits.com
