Covid Vaccination Scams

“Warning of vaccine scam phone calls

Scammers are using the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine to try to con people out of money, a council has warned.

Wirral Council told people to be on their guard after residents of New Ferry were prompted to book non-existent “vaccine appointments” in a recorded phone message.

Those receiving the calls are then asked to confirm by pressing a button on their phone – which results in them being billed by their provider.

Elderly people have been targeted by the calls, the council said.”
