Iceland Foods “Free £70 Coupon” Facebook Giveaway Scam

Outline:
Post appearing on Facebook claims that you can click to get a free coupon valued at £70 from UK supermarket chain Iceland Foods.



Analysis:
The claims in the post are untrue. It is not associated with Iceland Foods and those who participate will never receive the promised coupon.

In fact, the post is a scam designed to trick you into divulging your personal information on scam survey websites.  Any information you supply on these scam sites will be shared with dodgy marketing companies who will subsequently inundate you with unwanted and annoying phone calls, text messages, emails, and surface letters. In some cases, you might be tricked into signing up to very expensive SMS “services” that charge you several dollars for every message they send you.

Iceland Foods has confirmed that the post is a scam via comments on its official Facebook Page.
