Woolworths $50 survey
Western Australians have been receiving an email (see below) claiming to be from Woolworths and asking the recipient to fill in a survey in exchange for a $50 - $400 credit to the person’s account (referring to the supermarket’s Everyday Rewards Card). Unfortunately one woman has reported falling for the scam; responding with her secure personal information and subsequently having to alert her credit card provider.
The Woolworths website says the supermarket will never ask you to provide personal details in an email. Woolies is happy for anyone who receives any offer supposedly from them, out of the blue, to verify with them whether it is authentic. Read WA ScamNet’s advice regarding uninvited emails.
