Tesco warns customers against fraudulent SMS messages about winning a contest
24 January 2020
In recent days, Tesco has seen a number of cases in which customers turned to Tesco stores based on an SMS message to pick up a prize in the competition. However, this is a fraudulent report and Tesco dissociates itself from it.
Tesco declares that it will not organize any competition to which the fraudulent reports refer. It also asks its customers not to respond to fraudulent messages. In case of doubt, customers can always contact the customer hotline to check in advance if it is an official competition organized by Tesco. A free customer information line is available at 800 222 555.
This fraudulent activity harms Tesco's reputation. Therefore, it takes all possible steps to protect its customers and its business.
