Watch out for coronavirus scams!

We’ve been hearing tons of repors of people receiving scam texts.

These spoof texts impersonate government numbers and claim to be enforcing fines, with links attached.

As ever, don’t click on any links you receive in texts! They normally take you to sites that’re trying to steal your details.


As ever, there’s an incredible amount of misinformation being spread via WhatsApp.
