Fraudulent calls selling ‘NHS Covid Life Insurance’

We have heard reports that two people calling themselves Sarah and David are phoning individuals claiming that they are calling from the NHS and trying to sell Covid-19 Life Insurance. They have detailed information including names, addresses, types of vaccine and dates of vaccination.

Criminals are still using Covid-19 to obtain confidential information. Be alert to suspicious calls and remember that the NHS does not sell insurance.

If you receive a call that you believe to be fraudulent, hang up. If you have been a victim of fraud, report it to Action Fraud by calling 0300 123 2040 or visiting actionfraud.police.uk
