  • Police say the situation is extra critical at the moment, as information on the vaccinations is pending.
  • Earlier in the pandemic, police saw incidents of people tricking themselves into elderly care homes claiming to be from the health care services.
  • Per Engström, National Chief Superintendent of the Swedish Police Authority  urges the public to be extra careful right now, "All the contacts that ask for you to click on a link or authorise your identity through your bank card reader or Bank-id are probably attempts at fraud", he says.
