£1,820,731 Stolen

April 11, 2020

A Message from Sam Hancock – Cyber Protect Officer, Leicestershire Police

UPDATE: 641 victims have lost a combined total of £1,820,731 to coronavirus-related scams.

‪Action Fraud continue to receive
a high volume of reports about fake emails being used to solicit donations to
the NHS.

The NHS will never ask you to
send money directly to a bank account or make a payment using Bitcoin.

Additionally, there have been a
number of reports regarding emails claiming to be from HMRC offering tax
rebates as a result of #coronavirus

‪If you get a call or message
claiming to be from HMRC that asks you to click on a link or to give info such
as your name, card or bank details, it’s a scam.
