Fraud, coronavirus | Warnings regarding short vaccination messages:

The Municipality of Oslo has been informed of fraudulent SMS messages.

On the website of the Municipality of Oslo, they now warn against sending fake SMS messages of vaccines.

– We have received information that many residents have received an SMS about the third dose of the vaccine which the Municipality of Oslo is the sender in the text field. You are asked to respond with your social security number and name – not in response to the letter, the Municipality of Oslo wrote.

They further write that they did not send this SMS and that it is a fraud attempt.
