Watch out for Covid-related scams

Scammers are using Covid-19 fears to try to fool you into paying money or giving away personal information. Be on your guard.

We are all used to scammers trying to get us to unwittingly transfer money or give away valuable personal information. It can be a call, an email or a text.


Most are obvious, but some are extremely believable and go to great lengths by using what appears to be the the correct branding, email address and even phone number.


Always be suspicious and double-check any communication that asks you to log in or confirm your password, etc and please take extra care of those that may be more susceptible to such scams, such as the elderly or vulnerable.


If in doubt, go direct to your bank or the organisation that the communication appears to be from using a verifiable source. If something appears too good to be true, it almost always is.


If you are aware of a potential scam, please let us know. You may also like to find your nearest Neighbourhood Watch scheme via the website www.ourwatch.org.uk/


Hemingford Grey also has a dedicated Neighbourhood Watch group on Facebook.



ABOUT THE HUB

 What has become the Hemingford Hub was first proposed in 2017 as a test case for how lonely or isolated people in the village could be supported by the community care sector and NHS. The Hub was recognised as a community group and received funding in November 2019. Just as the team was preparing to launch the Hub, Covid-19 happened..
