Woolies warns shoppers of online scam

WOOLWORTHS has warned its customers of an email scam, that is rife on competition websites, claiming to give away supermarket vouchers.

Also targetting people via Facebook, the Customer Satisfaction Survey uses the supermarket chain's logo and carries the title 'Get a Free $400, $150 or $100 Woolworths voucher' or 'Customer Satisfaction Survey'.

"'Phishing' scams imitate well-known brands to try to collect your personal information," Woolworths said in a statement.

"We have reported this scam to the ACCC's SCAM Watch, and you can find their advice about phishing scams and how to avoid them, just click here.

"We would never ask our customers for their personal or banking details in unsolicited communications.

"All of our official competitions run from our Facebook Page at facebook.com/woolworths, and are posted on the 'Promotions & Competitions' page of our website.

"Please help us fight these scams and protect other consumers by reporting your experience to the ACCC - click here. "
