Phone Scam aimed at Primary age children

30 November 2021 (by admin)

We are raising awareness of text messages being sent to children posing as their parent. Please click above for full information.

This has not happened in our school but we are raising awareness of text messages being sent to children posing as their parent (in this case posing as mum). The purpose of the message is to get the child to engage by updating their contacts, then the perpetrator is asking for photos of the child almost immediately (sample screenshot attached) KS2 pupils were spoken to about this in assembly on Friday 26.11.2021 but we also wanted to raise awareness with parents and carers. Please be vigilant.
