Scam Alert: Fake Asda Voucher Giveaway By Fraudsters
How does a free Asda voucher sound? Yes, that would grab my attention too, and I'd be very tempted to go clicking links, especially if it's something big like £70. But you need to be very careful as there are some new fake giveaways doing the rounds on social media that fraudsters are using to try and gain personal information. If you see an offer on facebook or twitter like the one in our picture do not click on the link, and do not enter any personal information.
Asda have issued a warning over these fake offers, and say that they are not genuine. They said:
"There are a number of voucher giveaways circulating on social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter that are nothing to do with us and may be an attempt to capture your personal information.
Before you enter your details please check the link – if it's an official Asda competition or giveaway it should link to an Asda website such as asda.com or your.asda.com.
Unfortunately we have no control over third party websites and can only warn you not to be taken in by them. These are just some examples of recent "voucher giveaways" that are nothing to do with Asda."
The amounts of the voucher offered may vary, but they all end up at a site that looks like the one below, and you are then asked to share it and complete a survey in order to claim the "free voucher". People who have completed the survey say there is no such voucher.
You can read the warning in full on the Asda website here.
