NHS Covid-19 vaccination scam email and what to look out for

NHS Covid-19 vaccination scam email and what to look out for

I will show you an example of an email that was received to a users email and how to spot them fast

Ever email may look different however the principle is still the same for all emails you may think is a scam

This particular email is getting you to book a vaccination slot for a price this one was £3 or £5 depending on the day

the email:

NHS Covid-19 vaccination scam email and what to look out for

First thing not to do is click on any links especially if your on a mobile phone 

Now if you have a look at this email that was sent:

1. the sender’s email is not an official NHS Email (From NHS-UK <migoldsmith@hotmail.co.uk>), not all email software will show you the full email some will only show the From Name (From NHS-UK) and you may think that it’s from the NHS if you hover your mouse over the from the email  it will show the full email or right click and copy link then paste it into a text file and you will get the full email that way as well

2. Look out for spelling mistakes and grammar errors  as most of the email scams are done by no native English speaking people now with that in mind it’s now getting harder to spot fake emails with just misspelt words

3. Links within the email now in this email you have an (accept invitation) and a (decline invitation) if you hover your mouse over the links do not click them you will see the Web URL the link is going to this one is (https://www.ksginstitutions.com/js/) that has nothing to do with the NHS see image:
