Fake draw promises iPhone 11 or Samsung Galaxy S20
“We inform all our customers about sending e-mail / SMS with dubious and fraudulent content using our brand, as an example of the” Draw for an iPhone 11 or the new Samsung S20 “, can be read at the beginning of the statement .
“For the safety of everyone, we recommend that you avoid clicking on any link, as well as providing personal information such as bank card details, telephone contact, email, etc.”, explains Lidl.
This is the type of fraud that we have already been alerting, where only the protagonist changes. It is something to be careful of, but above all, to alert those who are less informed and can take these messages as serious.
What we recommend is that you take care with the data you share, and warn those around you to take the same precautions. In the case of Lidl, any campaign is only available on the official website, Facebook and Instagram.
