UC crisis grants up to 1000 pounds
I was sent a txt several days ago with a link to gov.crisis.direct and didn't think much more about it until a couple of days later when another txt came to say I was eligible and to follow the link gov.id-check.uk/crisisgrant along with an application id which sent me to the legitimate gov.uk website with an identity verification process. I followed the instructions but having done so was a bit wary. So this morning I called UC who, although didn't have details via my journal, or even knowledge of the crisis grants, assured me that it was not a scam and someone would be in touch. I'm confused because I can't find any reference to these UC crisis grants being offered without application via txt and would appreciate any clarity from the Scope community that I haven't been able to get so far from the UC phone lines. Is it a scam?
