Photo: Reporter. The scam was a link that people were sending to each other via Whatsapp. The link, when clicked on led to a site that claimed that Pick n Pay was giving away a gift voucher worth R4 to celebrate their 50th birthday. Pick n Pay released their statement via Facebook which clearly stated that Pick n Pay was no way involved in the scam and they were not giving away gift cards.
They also encouraged people not to click on the link or give away any of their personal information. Just last month there was another scam that involved Pick n Pay.
Just tell the cashier you have a coupon ,take the phone with you to ensure you have the correct number. Bring back the coupons, grocery prices have rocked sky high over the past few years. I just like the convenience of shopping online, if what I buy happens to be on the discount list, then it is an extra bonus to me. Checkers is a lot cheeper than Pick n pay with most of their items. They applaud Pick n Pay results, but demand much more. I want to receive the latest Pick n Pay catalogues and exclusive offers from Tiendeo in your city.
This scam was doing the rounds on Facebook with people sharing the link on their social media pages. Once someone clicked on the link they would be directed to a website where they would answer three questions from a survey before the post was shared on to their own timeline.
The scam offered a R1 coupon from the retailer. Facebook also had online safety tips attached to the post so people can take steps to be safe while on the internet.
