An Aldi scam is tricking Britons out of their personal information in return for a fake voucher. Scammers have been posing as the popular brand.
The scam is promising £250 vouchers from “Aldi” following a special link.
The scam is taking place via Facebook, WhatsApp and Twitter, and also via email.
The link takes potential victims to a page where it asks for their personal information.
An Aldi spokesperson told the Mirror: “The vouchers being circulated online are fraudulent. We advise customers to ignore these adverts and not to share any personal information.”
It said of the product: “Aldi’s Specially Selected Halloumi Fries (£2.29, 190g) are the summer food must-have.
“Covered in a golden and crispy seasoned coating make them perfect for dunking and dipping.
“Enjoy with mayo, ketchup, or sweet chilli. Or, layer with pomegranate and yogurt for a Middle Eastern flavour sensation.”
The Aldi halloumi burger is also back in stores.
Tesco customer engagement centre told the Manchester Evening News: “We appreciate that, for many reasons, most of us aren’t shopping as often as we did before lockdown.
As a little help from Clubcard, we want to give you more time to use your vouchers which were due to expire on 31 May 2020.
“Any vouchers issued in May 2018 will now not expire until 30 November 2020, giving you an extra 6 months to use them.
“We’ll update the expiry date on your digital vouchers, and we’ll continue to accept paper vouchers in-store until the extended expiry date. We really hope it helps, and take care.”
