Is this a scam?  Very likely.....Is this a scam? Very likely.....We've been alerted to an e-mail being circulated that appears to be the from NHS asking for donations towards the 'purchase of medical equipmet and supplies', and more (see above).  We've asked contacts within the NHS if it is genuine and the replies have all been that it is a scam.  It is a well-presented scam, it appears authentic and but is likely to be just another device for criminals to extract money from the well-intentioned public.  Our advice would be to ignore it, bin it and not attempt to reply in any way.
