Contact tracers scam alert!

Posted on 5 Jun 2020


We have been made aware that scammers have tried to pose as Contact Tracers and requested bank details from members of the public. See the image below for info about what to expect if you are called by a Contact Tracer and how you can verify a call.

Contact Tracers will ask for information about your movements and the people you have been in close physical proximity to. They will never ask for money or bank details.

If you are unsure, you can verify calls are genuine by calling the NHS Ayrshire and Arran Contact Tracing Team on 01292 559880 during working hours (Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, and 10am to 4pm on Saturdays and Sundays)
