Have You Won a $1,000 Coles Giftcard

Text Message to Say: You have Won $1,000 Coles Giftcard..

Have you received a Text Message saying you have won $1,000 as part of “our customer of the month” program, seemingly from Coles?

This one?

A similar message, said to be from Woolworths has their customers “winning” $2,000 through the same method.

This appears to be a scam designed to get your personal details.

This is nothing new, as can be seen by looking at: https://www.scamwatch.gov.au/news/watch-out-for-scam-surveys-and-fake-gift-card-offers

“Scammers use fake gift card promotions to trick consumers into handing over their personal information such as banking details or passwords, which are later used to steal your money or your identity, or to on-sell to other scammers.”

A message from Coles regarding Scams:.

Coles advises customers to be aware of websites, competitions and other unsolicited promotions that use the Coles brand without Coles’ permission or which promote Coles Gift cards in an attempt to appear legitimate. These offers predominantly attempt to collect your personal details or financial information. Coles will never request personal or banking details in unsolicited communications.
