Says one user on Facebook: ‘I’m so wary of scams, but this one looks really convincing.’ Added another: ‘They usually pop up on my phone, I wasn’t expecting to see it on Facebook. It looks so convincing.’
Woolworths, meanwhile, says they’ve already reported the scam to the ACCC’s SCAM Watch - and have urged customers to be vigilant.
'We encourage our customers to be vigilant of online and mobile phishing scams, which seek to imitate well-known brands to collect personal information,' a Woolworths spokesperson tells New Idea Food.
'We will never ask our customers for their personal or banking details in unsolicited communications.
'We report scams to the ACCC's SCAM Watch and regularly update our Scam Alerts page on our website to help keep customers secure online.'
