Scammers are sending the NHS Check PCR Testkit scam text below to potential victims with a link to check-pcr-testkit.com. The aim of the fake PCR Home Test Kit text, which claims the recipients have been in close proximity to someone who has been contagious, is to frighten and trick them into clicking the link. The link goes to a phishing website that steals personal and financial information.
