Tommy as good as new!

We would like to thank Sean Maguire Managing Director of Sapcote Engineering.

They have repaired the Tommy that was damaged during storm Ciara on the weekend of 8th and 9th of February 2020.

Sapcote Engineering have very kindly repaired the statue free of charge.

Tommy is now back in his rightful place at Broughton Astley Memorial Garden.

Trading Standards Alert – Covid-19 vaccine scam text

Trading Standards Alert – Covid-19 vaccine scam text

A dangerous fake NHS text has been circulating, telling people they're eligible to apply for the COVID-19 vaccine.

The text confusingly states that "we have identified that your are eligible to apply for your vaccine" and advises you to follow a link to get more information: uk-application-form.com

This link takes you through to an extremely convincing fake NHS website that asks for your personal details and will ask you for your bank/card details in order to 'check your identity'.

These fake sites may typically contain spelling or grammar mistakes, classic signs of a phishing scam.

Please remain vigilant of Coronavirus scams!

We know that criminals will use the confusion and urgency around the pandemic as a way to target potential victims – 'Which' have covered five similar attempts:

⚠ Council tax reduction phishing email

⚠ Fake NHS contact tracing text

⚠ HMRC Government grant phishing email

⚠ Microsoft 'covid relief fund' phishing email

⚠ COVID-19 vitamin pill cold calls

With the recent approval of multiple vaccines in the UK, these types of scam attempts are likely to continue as fraudsters look to take advantage of the roll out to so many people.

Cold calls regarding the vaccine are also beginning to take place – we've already had reports of scammers asking people to pay for it over the phone. If you receive one of these calls, hang up.

'Which' advise:
If you think you may have handed over your card details to scammers, let your bank know what's happened immediately. Please do share this warning with friends and family so we can prevent anyone from falling victim.

For more details please visit the 'Which' website page: WHICH
