SuperValu warns customers not to respond to email fraudster

Scammers are trying to lure targets in with promises of fake vouchers.

CUSTOMERS OF SUPERMARKET giant SuperValu have been warned about interacting with potential fraudsters.

The company has said that a number of people have been contacted and offered vouchers to spend in store.

Anyone who received the email is being warned not to respond as it has the potential to cause harm to a person’s computer.

This isn’t the first time that scammers have used coupons as a way of phishing for potential targets. 

Earlier this year discount chain Aldi issued a warning about a similar scam – with customers being offered vouchers for as much as €100.

Taking to social media, it warned its customers that the offers were not real, and advised anyone who had been caught out to contact a member of its customer service team.
