Last week it came to our attention that there was a WhatsApp message circulating the country offering ‘a Free Cadbury’s Easter Chocolate Hamper’ and ‘over 5,000 free gifts to be won!’ – an offer you can’t refuse right?
Wrong! Unfortunately – for chocolate fans everywhere – this was obviously a scam.
The message is said to contain a link that looks like it has come from Russia. When opened, it has been asking for personal details and even your passwords!
The British police have issued a warning stating that the link attempts to access personal details.
Merseyside Police tweeted a warning, saying they “know its hard to turn down free chocolate” but it is in fact a scam “designed to gain access to your personal details.”
Cadbury UK have released a statement claiming that “we can confirm that this has not been generated by us and we urge consumers not to interact or share personal information through the post.”
