Red Cross Scotland has issued a statement to slam reports that the charity is offering coronavirus testing.
It follows discussions on social media stating the charity is conducting tests.
The statement on Twitter read: “We’ve heard reports on social media that people are claiming to be Red Cross volunteers and falsely offering coronavirus tests.
“These are fake: we are NOT conducting any tests anywhere in the UK.
“We've reported it to the police. Please ask to see ID if anyone reaches out to you.”
Red Cross is a humanitarian charity that formed 150 years ago to help people across the UK and beyond in times of crisis.
