Dorset Police warning over Lloyds Pharmacy email scams

PEOPLE are being warned of a scam email being sent purporting to be from a pharmacy.

Scammers are currently targeting people with fake Lloyds Pharmacy emails, according to Dorset Police.

The emails falsely claim that by signing up for LloydsDirect you can easily manage prescriptions and get free delivery.

“These emails contain links designed to steal personal and financial information, or install malware,” said Damian Cranny, Dorset Police fraud protect officer.

“The fraudsters have made the emails appear more genuine by including LloydsDirect/NHS logos and Trustpilot reviews.

“However, these emails are fake. Do not click any links, provide info, or sign up through these emails. Double check directly with your pharmacy if unsure.”

He added: “Stay vigilant against pharmacy-themed phishing campaigns trying to steal personal information or distribute malware. Verify legitimacy through official channels before engaging.”
