Title: Covid-19 Scam
Post by: Blewit on January 14, 2021, 12:21
Just as a heads up.. I've received a text saying it was from Gov.Uk offering 283.76 for each household as part of it's battle against Covid-19. It came with a link to a website to apply for the money.
I deleted the message immediately but see online the advice is don't click the link.

Only surprised it's taken someone this long to put a scam in place
