Newark and Sherwood public warned about dangers of Covid Pass fraud
People are being warned about the dangers of NHS Covid Pass fraud.
It has been reported that criminals have been trying to convince people to pay for the pass, even though it should be free.
An NHS Covid Pass shows your coronavirus vaccination details or test results, which you may be asked to show to travel abroad — or at certain events and venues in England.
Fraudsters have been asking people to hand over money, financial details and personal information.
They have also sent imitation text messages, emails and phone calls pretending to be from the NHS and offering fake vaccine certificates.
The Government Counter Fraud Function is reminding the public that the NHS App and the Covid Pass is free to everyone and that the NHS will never ask for payment or financial details.
