Scam warnings

Vaccine Scam

This scam comes from Thames Valley Police Neighbourhood Policing. Nationally, a fake NHS text message has been circulating, informing people that they’re eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine.
The scam message reads “we have identified that you are eligible to apply for your vaccine” and then prompts you to click on a link for further information or to ‘apply’ for the vaccine.

This URL takes you to a convincing NHS website, which is in fact fake, where fraudsters are attempting to coerce people into divulging personal or financial information.

If you receive a text or email that asks you to click on a link or for you to provide information, such as your name, credit card or bank details, it's a scam.
Any text message or e-mail containing a link should be treated with caution. The best way to find information from GOV.UK, or any other agency, is to visit that particular website via a trusted source (such as through Google or Bing) and do not click on links in texts or emails.
Cold calls regarding the vaccine are also beginning to take place, where scammers are asking people to pay for the vaccine over the phone. If you receive one of these calls, hang up. There is of course no charge for the vaccine.

Second Scam

A local person was contacted by telephone by a man who gave a name and said he was a policeman from Uxbridge. The caller said he had got our member's carer there with a lot of money for him!

The member involved does not have a carer so immediately ended the call and reported it to the police, who said there was no-one with that name at Uxbridge Police Station. Presumably this was intended to be some sort of Bank / ID fraud which could have resulted in our member's bank account being raided.

Stop work on HS2 immediately and hold a new vote to repeal the legislation - Petitions (parliament.uk)
It's a 'last ditch' attempt to persuade the Government to re-open the debate on HS2 in the hope that there may be a change of heart. And please could you pass it on to others. Stop work on HS2 immediately

Car MOT's

Please be aware that vehicle owners/drivers do not get an annual MOT reminder. It's very easy to forget with disastrous consequences, particularly if you are involved in a accident.

With this https://www.reminders.mot-testing.service.gov.uk/ link it is very simple to set up an annual reminder. You just put a registration number and an email address into the box. It sends a reminder one month before your MOT expires then another two weeks prior if you've not had your car tested.
