Nottingham residents have been warned by Aldi of a voucher scam that is circulating on social media. The ‘Aldi Scam’ offers recipients a £250 voucher that they can spend at the supermarket in exchange for their personal information and message forwarding. The scam includes a link to an Aldi look-a-like webpage where in order to claim the free Aldi voucher personal details needed to be given. 

Aldi informed locals that they currently do not have any voucher promotion and that this is a scam. 

To protect oneself from being fooled by scams it is advice to contact the reputable organisation or visit their website about the ‘scam-like’ information such as voucher, discount or giveaway, as they are the ones who can verify the information. You should also not read any suspicious messages and report them to stop the harm spreading. 

When bank account details or other sensitive information has been given, contact your bank or police immediately, to help them protect you from the scammers. 

Keep an eye on the messages that you receive and do not give any personal information without verifying the validity of that promotion beforehand. 

To report any scams, call Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or report them online.
