Coronavirus Track and Trace Scams

The information below has been received from Humberside Police.

Coronavirus Track & Trace Scams Advice
Be aware of a growing trend of criminals taking advantage of the current Covid-19 crisis to defraud innocent people, including the new NHS Test and Trace service.
The NHS Test and Trace service has been introduced to allow the NHS to trace the spread of the virus, isolate new infections and give early warning if the virus is increasing again.
However, scammers are now making phone calls, sending texts and emails pretending to be from NHS Test and Trace in order to obtain your personal details.
Advice on how to identify a genuine contact tracer from a scammer.
Genuine NHS contact tracers will:
call you from 0300 013 5000
send you text messages from ‘NHS’
ask you to sign into the NHS test and trace contact-tracing website
ask for your full name and date of birth to confirm your identity, and postcode to offer support while self-isolating
ask about the coronavirus symptoms you have been experiencing
ask you to provide the name, telephone number and/or email address of anyone you have had close contact with in the two days prior to your symptoms starting
ask if anyone you have been in contact with is under 18 or lives outside of England
Contact tracers will never:
ask you to dial a premium rate number to speak to them (for example, those starting 09 or 087)
ask you to make any form of payment or purchase a product of any kind
ask for any details about your bank account
ask for your social media identities or login details, or those of your contacts
ask you for any passwords or PINs, or ask you to set up any passwords or PINs over the phone
disclose any of your personal or medical information to your contacts
provide medical advice on the treatment of any potential coronavirus symptoms
ask you to download any software to your PC or ask you to hand over control of your PC, smartphone or tablet to anyone else
ask you to access any website that does not belong to the government or NHS
If you or somebody you know has been caught out by a scam or fraud contact Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or visit the Action Fraud website. If you need advice on anything else, please contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline 0344 411 1444
You will only ever be called from the number 0300 013 5000, or you will be texted from “NHS”.

Friends of St Giles Bielby 100 Club

Friends of St Giles Bielby 100 Club

 Following the previous post I'd like to thank all those that have renewed their 100 club subscriptions. We are, however, well short on last year's donations and because of the lock-down, we've missed services and therefore collections. Even so, we've still got costs, so all support from the 100 club is going to be especially valuable and, as ever, much appreciated.

 Please can anyone wishing to renew their subscription (donation £13 annually) please either drop it through our letter box (Old School House - white house next to the Church) or email me ( and I will send details of how to make payment on-line. New members of the 100 club are always welcome.

 Best wishes,
 Steve Smith
