Aldi Discount Voucher Hoax Warning

  • Written by Editor

Andover News | £85 Aldi Discount Voucher Hoax Warning | Andover & VillagesAldi supermarket has warned shoppers not to be taken in by a fake £85 Aldi voucher currently being shared on Facebook as it could allow fraudsters to steal personal information.

The coupon appears to offer shoppers £85 off their next grocery shop and asks for customers to fill in a form in order to obtain the discount.

By clicking on the link, shoppers are directed to survey page which asks for personal information such as your name, address and date of birth. You will then be asked to share the post on your Facebook page which will in turn spam all your friends with the same offer.

Some of the victims have even unwittingly tagged their friends to the post.

The scam first cropped up in October 2016 and again in March 2017.

Aldi posted on Twitter yesterday: 'Alert: there's a hoax £85 Aldi voucher circulating online. This offer is fraudulent & cannot be redeemed in our stores. We're investigating'.
