Anyone received such sms for Covid Vaccine ?

"Dear Ch Balavva, You have succesfully been vaccinated with your 1 Dose with COVISHIELD on 24-04-2021 at 05:29 PM. You may download your vaccination Certificate from – https://sit.co...in – CoWIN"

I am not yet vaccinated, nor am I yet eligible, nor my name is as mentioned in the sms.

Is it something to worry ?

This is a fraud SMS with fraud link. The correct one contains the following link for downloading certificate “https://www.cowin.g...n/
And the correct sms also indicates “1st dose” or “2nd dose” instead of “1 dose”

Why not click? You should check how fraud site looks like. Don’t need to be scared like that. It’s copycat site of cowin site. Should be reported.

I didn’t click it.
But manually typed the address in the browser.
It’s opens the same website as the government one.
Don’t know which one is genuine.

It’s a fake sms
Successfully-spelling is wrong
It should be 1st dose not 1 dose
Site should be cowin
Ignore it or if you want report it.Seems like new kind of fraud.

Don’t we have some online portals where we could report such sites?

Dear {name}, You have succesfully been vaccinated with your 1st Dose with COVISHIELD on {date} at {time}. You may download your vaccination Certificate from – https://www.cowin.g...n/ – CoWIN


This is the actual format & SMS will come from NHPSMS header.
Don’t click on the link.
Login on Cowin website with your number and check for certificate..

A nurse working in a private hospital in Indore was found to take regular Remdesivir out of the vial and replace it with water.

You’ll need otp to login.. and there is no registration kind of thing there.

Even if there is certificate, it is not in your name (as per SMS, and your statement)
Still you can get vaccine dose, and can give this number.

It seems real, I checked the WHOIS data of https://sit.co-vin.i...me & it is registered by Trigyn Technology Ltd. the same company which designed the Cowin vaccine software. This site was even registered earlier than official govt site(this site was registered on 29.10.2020 while govt site was registered on 26.11.2020).

But the data count on both the website differ from each other.https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/680529/medium/IMG_20210424_212856.jpg?1619279966https://cdn0.desidime.com/attachments/photos/680530/medium/IMG_20210424_212831.jpg?1619279985

My guess is that other site works as a kind of load sharing proxy for the main site & there is some time delay in synchronisation of data across them.
