Criminals are exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic to try and get their hands on your money and personal information. To date, Action Fraud has received reports from 2,378 victims of Coronavirus-related scams, with the total losses reaching over £7 million.
The NHS Test and Trace service plays an important role in the fight against coronavirus and it’s vital the public have confidence and trust in the service. However, we understand the concerns people have about the opportunity for criminals to commit scams.
What you need to know:
Contact tracers will only call you from the number 0300 013 5000. Anyone who does not wish to talk over the phone can request the NHS Test and Trace service to send an email or text instead, inviting them to log into the web-based service.
All text or emails sent by NHS Test and Trace will ask people to sign into the contact tracing website and will provide you with a unique reference number. We would advise people to type the web address https://contact-tracing.phe.gov.uk directly into their browser, followed by the unique reference number given to you, rather than clicking on any link provided in the message.
The NHS Test and Trace service will never:
- ask you to dial a premium rate number to speak to them (for example, those starting 09 or 087)
- ask you to make any form of payment or purchase a product or any kind
- ask for any details about your bank account
- ask for your social media identities or login details, or those of your contacts
- ask you for any passwords or PINs, or ask you to set up any passwords or PINs over the phone
- ask you to download any software to your PC or ask you to hand over control of your PC, smartphone or tablet to anyone else
- ask you to access any website that does not belong to the government or NHS
If you think you have been a victim of fraud, please report it to Action Fraud at https://www.actionfraud.police.uk or by calling 0300 123 2040.
There are some simple steps you can take that will protect you from the most common Coronavirus-related scams. Here’s what need to do:
1 – Watch out for scam messages
Your bank, or other official organisations, won’t ask you to share personal information over email or text. If you receive an email you’re not quite sure about, forward it to the Suspicious Email Reporting Service (SERS): [email protected]
2 – Shopping online
If you’re making a purchase from a company or person you don’t know and trust, carry out some research first, for example, by checking to see if others have used the site and what their experience was. If you decide to go ahead with the purchase, use a credit card if you have one, other payment providers may not provide the same protection.
3 – Unsolicited calls and browser pop-ups offering tech support
Never install any software, or grant remote access to your computer, as a result of a cold call. Remember, legitimate organisations would never contact you out of the blue to ask for financial details such as your PIN or full banking password.

Distribution of SmartWater
The Police and Crime Commissioner for the West Midlands, John Campion has invited Parish Councils to join a scheme to supply SmartWater to every household in the Parish.
SmartWater contains a unique forensic code, which, once applied, enables equipment to be traced back to the owner. It is easy to apply and needs only a spot the size of a pinhead to identify property, it is almost impossible to remove and is guaranteed for 5 years.
The SmartWater has been purchased by the Parish Councils and will be supplied free of charge to Parishioners, who will be able to collect and register their pack as follows –
Chetton, Billingsley, Deuxhill, Glazeley and Middleton Scriven Parishioners at
Chetton Village Hall
Monday 24th February
between 3.30pm and 7pm
Smartwater, a water-based solution that is unique to each individual, allows property to be marked and enables the police to identify the owner of the property, and convict the offender if caught with it.
Telford-based SmartWater manufactures and supplies cutting-edge forensic marking products which can be used to protect all manner of valuables, business assets and vehicles. Every bottle of the liquid carries a unique forensic code which is registered to a specific address. Once applied it is almost impossible to remove and can only be seen under ultraviolet (UV) light.
SmartWater is extremely robust has been independently tested to last the equivalent of 5 years in external weather conditions.
Featuring never-before-seen footage, concert performances and intimate interviews, filmmaker Ron Howard examines the life and career of the most successful opera singer of all-time, Luciano Pavarotti. This reveals how an elementary school teacher created thunder loud enough to make the world take notice and bringing Opera widespread popular appeal. Pavarotti’s optimism is contagious, and his schoolboy-like wonder means there’s a lot to smile at here.
Starring Spike Lee, Princess Diana, Phil Donahue, Bono, Luciano Pavarotti
