Coles Customers Warned Of HUGE SCAM
Scammers have been circulating a bogus $500 Coles gift card competition email.
And now the supermarket has warned customers to ignore the scam message amid fears their details will be compromised.
Several customers have mentioned the latest email, which invites them to click and button and follow instructions, on social media.
The message reads: “Congratulations! Your email address was selected! Please make sure you claim your chance to receive this $500 Coles gift card”.
The fine print mentions that the promotion is not affiliated with Coles and has a New York-based address to unsubscribed.
If you have seen the email, you are advised to report it Scamwatch.gov.au.
Coles website has a section on the promotions that use their name, which says
“These offers predominantly attempt to collect your personal details or financial information. Coles will never request personal or banking details in unsolicited communications.’’
