Fraudsters are impersonating the NHS once again with another covid test text scam, sending victims to a fake NHS website.
We show you what this scam looks like so that you can spot, avoid and report it.
The text message claims to be a tracing notification and tells you that you’ve been exposed to the Omicron Covid-19 variant and need to take a test.
Reports of this scam show the message is coming from 07874269207, 07874285262 and 07874284325.
The message says: ‘We’ve been notified you have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 (Omicron). Please order a mandatory test via: [health-department-uk.com].'

Last month, the NHS warned that scam text messages regarding test kits had been reported and it confirmed that it never asks for bank details.
Covid test kits are no longer free for most, but tests can be ordered from genuine retailers online or picked up in-store.
Dodgy text messages can be reported by forwarding them to 7726 - a free reporting service provided by telecoms companies. Then you can block and delete the message.
If you've already clicked on a link and you're worried you could've given away any personal or financial details, contact your bank immediately and report the scam to Action Fraud.
