I received the message you see above yesterday and – thankfully – my husband stopped me from reacting to it.
He told me about a website where you can check suspicious numbers https://who-called.co.uk/Number/07519328626 and if you click on it you will see this is a bogus number that has also masqueraded as the Hermes parcel delivery service.
It’s shocking but not entirely unexpected that criminals should use the pandemic to try and steal your personal information. Please be careful.
