There have been reports from Scottish consumers about cold callers who say that you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 and ask you to pay £500 to take a test.

There have been reports from Scottish consumers about cold callers who say that you have been in contact with someone who has tested positive for Covid-19 and ask you to pay £500 to take a test.

Genuine contact tracers will NEVER ask you for any financial details or ask you to make a payment.

Genuine contact tracers will give you a number that you can call to verify their identity. If you have doubts about a call from a contact tracer in the NHS Grampian area, you should call the main switchboard number 0345 456 6000 and they should be able to assist you and check the authenticity of your call.
