Scam text messages


We have become aware of scam text messages that look as if they are from an NHS account, informing people of Omicron exposure.

These messages state the recipient has been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19. Texts include a link to a fake NHS website to order a PCR test.

The website asks for their personal details and a small amount of money is requested to cover postage for the PCR test.

SNBTS are sending no text messages about Omicron results. No bank or legitimate organisation will ask you to transfer your money to a safe account – ever. Please do not click on this link. The link may look very plausible.

If you have queries please contact us online, or email us on

Thank you.
