Aldi say 40% off coupon is a scam
You may have seen a voucher, offering 40% off at Aldi doing the rounds, but the retailer says that it is a scam and should be avoided. They have explicitly said that this voucher can't be redeemed in any of its UK stores.
They've also pointed out that you shouldn't give away any personal details when trying to get the voucher, or take part in the competition that is linked to this discount.
It looks like this.
Aldi are now investigating the suspicious coupon.
As you can see from the image above, there's something fishy about it - the font on the date is irregular, with the '5' in the '15' being different to the other numbers. That sets alarm bells off immediately. And of course, anyone who asked for personal details for a coupon like this, is bound to be up to something, especially if it isn't coming straight from the supermarket themselves.
A post on Aldi's Facebook page reads: "We have been notified that there is a hoax 40% off Aldi voucher being circulated online. Please be aware that this post is fraudulent and cannot be redeemed in our stores."
"We strongly advise that you do not complete any personal details or enter the competition that is running as part of claiming the voucher. This is currently being fully investigated. Thank you, Aldi UK"
They also tweeted: "ALERT: We are aware that there is a hoax 40% off Aldi voucher being circulated. This post is fraudulent and cannot be redeemed in store. We strongly advise you not to enter any personal details on this website. This is currently being fully investigated. Thank you, Aldi UK"
So now you know. If you see one, avoid.
