Beware of COVID Pass scams

Beware of COVID Pass scams

This attack is aimed at residents of the UK. It makes use of social engineering in a similar fashion to other pandemic-themed SMS texts, with a strong psychological aspect tied in for good measure.
This one works as follows: SMS messages are sent to unsuspecting individuals. The linked site is HTTPs, to give that added sheen of “this is the real website, because it’s got a padlock”. Hopefully you know that a padlock does not mean you can trust a website, many don’t. The site design imitates the usual look and feel of NHS websites, specifically those related to COVID-19. Here’s an example of the real thing. [several screenshots of questions are shown next] The scammers ask for a lot of details across multiple pages, beginning with “the exact name used when you registered with your GP surgery”. From there, they ask for date of birth, post code, and an address where they can deliver “your Covid pass credentials to be registered on our NHS app”. After this, they request “a payment of £4.99 to process your Covid Pass application”. [There are currently no “Covid Passes” anywhere I know of in the USA, but it looks as if they’re common in the UK. Use your best judgement. Alan25main]

It’s available in some states. For example, in California you can get a digital version of your COVID vaccination record from the state government (it’s free):

All you have to do is take a picture of your vaccination card with your phone. Hard copies of Counterfeit vaccination cards in Rhode Island are selling for $25 :flushed: and then you need another one for the booster shot next month. What a scam !!!

in Italy we have a kind of covid pass and it is called the green pass
