Emirates Post warns residents of fake promotion

date

11-Jul-2019

Dubai: The Emirates Post Group (EmPost) has issued an alert to residents over a new scam that claims to offer prizes in their name.
 
Describing the scam, Empost explained that con artists send a SMS or WhatsApp message to residents and invite them to participate in a special promotion.
 
In exchange for their personal information, residents allegedly have the opportunity to win a Samsung Galaxy S10 smart phone.
 
In a statement, Empost announced that the promotion currently circulating around the UAE is in no way affiliated with the government body.
 
“There is a fraudulent campaign in the name of Emirates Post asking customers to participate in winning a Samsung S10. Please note that this did not come from Emirates Post and is therefore not under the group’s liability,” it said.
 
EmPost also stressed that they have alerted the relevant authorities, and intend to file a court case against the scammers.
 
On their Twitter account, EmPost said: “We advise that you delete the fraudulent link/message immediately to protect your personal information. We are working with Cyber Security and the authorities to bring an end to this scam and to prosecute those who created it.”
