Covid-19: Warning over scam texts

Cyber security expert Prof Kevin Curran explains how fraudsters have tried to exploit the Covid pandemic to trick people out of their money.

It comes as police warn about a new scam circulating in Northern Ireland where people are texted and told a close contact has tested positive for Covid 19 and are instructed to click a link to book a test.

Prof Curran says the worst case scenario for victims of the scams is that they’ll lose all their money.
