Neighbourhood Watch: Avoiding Test and Trace scams

Hertfordshire Constabulary is warning residents to be aware that scammers are posing as NHS Test and Trace contact workers.

The new Test and Trace system is being rolled out across the country, meaning contact tracers are now getting in touch with those who have had recent close contact with people who have had a positive COVID-19 test.

However, it is important that people are aware that fraudsters are trying to take advantage of this process by posing as contact tracers and gathering personal information by deception.

The following link will help to identify if you are genuinely being contacted by the NHS.
