Cadbury’s issues statement after viral social media scam
Cadbury’s has urged the public to not share any personal information online through a scam that has been doing the rounds on social media over the last number of days.
A link - mainly shared by friends - offers the chance to win a Cadbury’s Easter hamper and begins by asking the person four simple questions. As it continues, the person is then asked to share the link with a further five groups or 20 friends, before entering personal information to supposedly ‘win’ the hamper.
A spokesperson for Cadbury’s said:
“We’ve been made aware of circulating posts on social media, claiming to offer consumers a free Easter Chocolate basket," it said.
"We can confirm that this has not been generated by us and would urge consumers not to interact or share personal information through the post.
"Customer security is our priority and we’re working with the relevant organisations to ensure this is resolved.”
