Scam Alert - Text Messages

Scam Alert – Text messages claiming to be from ‘Tesco’ stating you ‘took the 2ND place in our Tesco’ Christmas Prize Draw’ – 21 January 2019

We are warning about text messages circulating stating ‘you took the 2ND place in our Tesco’ Christmas Prize Draw’ and providing a link to ‘Collect it here’.

These text messages are not from the Tesco and there is no prize to claim. Anyone following the link will be taken to a website which claims you need to complete a survey to ‘claim your prize’. These surveys then attempt to gather personal and financial details.

If you have received a text message which you believe to be a scam you can report it to us via our partners, the Citizens Advice consumer helpline on 03454 04 05 06.
