message from "Medicare" stating that I have been in close contact with someone who has contacted Omicron, and I must order a PCR test from a website they provide.
Looks like scammers as it should read 'contracted' Omicron not 'contacted', so they can't even get their grammar right. I didn't click on the site.
Message- "You have been in close contact with someone who has encountered Omicron. You must book a free PCR Test Kit at: medicare.pcr-booking,com"
I got the Medicare/Omicron scam too. The clue was I had to book a free PCR Test Kit. There is no such thing only the RAT kit. Stupid moron. d*ckhead moron scammer uses the trick “that your phone plan needs recharging” using optus-recharge.cc/verify
Warning warning warning
Medicare scam Caller: 0431 064 697
Received a message that my Samsung identified as spam quote: Medicare: You've been in close contact with somone who has tested positive for Omicron. For your safety you must order a free PCR Test Kit at: https://medicare-kit-booking.com
Dodgy message about being a close contact of someone with omicron - how would they know? I got a message from this number too indicating that "You have been a close contact with someone who has encountered Omicron. You must book a free PCR test kit at medicare.pcr-booking.com" Googled the link and it didnt come up. Assuming it is a scam Said I had been in touch with someone with Omicron and gave link mentioning PCR test. Looks like scammer. Blocked. Caller: From this number
The message says: "You have been in close contact with someone who has encountered Omicron. You must book a free PCR Test Kit at: medicare.pcr-booking.com"
This is now that we do not even check in when we enter to different places, basically there is no tracking system available any more.
When I clicked on the link it took me to the website that "seems" to be the PCR booking website.
They ask for your personal information.
