Fake ASDA Emails

Please be alert to fake emails purporting to be from Asda. These emails state that the recipient can win a £100 promotional reward gift card by completing a marketing survey. To access the survey, the recipient must click on a shortcut within the email that leads to a website controlled by the cyber criminal, the webpage may look genuine but is designed to deceive the recipient into revealing personal information especially email/username/password.

 

This currently appears to be a national issue, and at this time, I have not heard of anyone within Cambridgeshire receiving such an email.

Remember, although these emails are specific to Asda criminals could easily change their template to represent any UK based retailer.

 

If in doubt, don’t click and go to the official and genuine website of the alleged sender.
