Covid 19 scam warning - Clanfield Neighbourhood Watch

The following information about a scam connected to Covid 19 was passed to Clanfield Neighbourhood Watch Team by a resident of Horndean.

“I thought it worth passing this on to you: my son had a call from "Track and Trace Service" and was told that according to their system he had been in close proximity to someone who has tested positive for Covid 19. This meant he had to isolate for 7 days and take a Covid 19 test.

“The caller was unable to tell him any details as it was confidential information. He kept emphasising that my son needed to take a test within 72 hours and that the caller needed his mailing address for the kit.

“The caller then went on to say he needed the card number for the kit which cost £50, and even threatened him with non-compliance. My son then realised that it was a scam as the test kit is free.”
