Alert message sent 10/03/2020 11:08:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

So far, victims of Coronavirus related scams have lost over £800k to fake online sales and websites wanting your personal details!

** Protect yourself **
Watch out for scam messages:
Don’t click on the links or attachments in emails, and never respond to unsolicited messages or calls that ask for your personal or financial details.

Shopping online:
If you’re making a purchase from a company or person you don’t know and trust, carry out some research first, and ask a friend or family member for advice before completing the purchase. If you decide to go ahead with the purchase, use a credit card if you have one, as most major credit card providers insure online purchases.

Only use legitimate websites for information, such as NHS, World Health Organisation & Foreign Office
