ALERT! Shoppers warned of fake Woolworths coupon scam

Woolworths has issued an urgent warning to shoppers over a fake and convincing coupon scam currently doing the rounds.

The supermarket giant said the scam has been targeting people on Facebook, pretending to offer them $100 off their next shop if they share the link with their friends.

It even features an official-looking barcode with the Woolworths logo and other branding.

“Scams are often specially designed to look genuine, and often copy features from legitimate communications such as our logo and branding,” Woolworths said in a statement.

“Woolworths will never email, message, or call you to ask for your personal or financial information including your password, credit card details or account information.

“For example, the link might take you to the website www.woolwoorths.com.au instead of www.woolworths.com.au.

It’s understood the supermarket giant has reported the scam to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission and ScamWatch.
