Beware of the fake Asda Coupons offer on Facebook 

You may well have seen one of your friends posting a link on Facebook to get a free £100 back to school coupons from ASDA.

The offer seems too good to be true – and of course it is. The scam is currently sweeping through Facebook, as people desperately hope that the generous offer turns out to be real. Unfortunately however the free shopping vouchers have not been offered by ASDA – and the link is nothing to do with the supermarket.

If you click on the link you will be encouraged to share the same status update that with your friends. It is claimed that after you share it, you will be able to claim your free voucher.

But this is where the scam begins! You are instead taken to a page where you are encouraged to enter all your personal details which are passed straight on to the scammers.

If you see this scam on Facebook, don’t click on the link. Instead ensure that you warn all your Facebook friends of the scam to help protect them.
