The post reads: ‘Winner (Melissa S. - Auckland) of the Christmas competition for the year of free groceries did not respond to our requests to claim their price over the past week. Therefore we will be giving out the year of free groceries to someone who shares and comments below. Like our page for updates. Closes Jan 20.’
And given it looks so much like an official Facebook post, thousands on Facebook are already falling for it with more than 7,000 likes, comments and shares.
‘Pick meeeeeeee!’ wrote one Facebook user. Said another: ‘Yes please!’
Woolworths has confirmed that they’ve reported the new competition to authorities, and has directed customers to their website for more information on scams to avoid.
