Action Fraud has received 41 reports in the last two days.
We have received 41 reports of a scam email purporting to be from HM Government asking for donations to the NHS during the COVID-19 outbreak.
This is a fake email and your money will only end up in the hands of a criminal.
The NHS will never ask you to send money directly to a bank account. If you would like to donate to the NHS you can do so via their official channels or your local NHS Trust.
Don't click on the links or attachments in suspicious emails and never respond to messages that ask for your personal or financial details.
