Argos Warning Over Scam Targeting Customers

  • Written by Editor

argos scamA scam involving fake delivery text messages supposedly from Argos to customers is currently doing the rounds.

Fraudsters send a message which tells the customer they have a package waiting for them, this is followed by a URL which directs the customer to a website offering free iPhones in exchange for their bank details.

Other versions of this scam will tell customers they qualify for £180 refund on their 'Argos Card' and they need to click on a link to claim it - the link asks for bank details.

Many customers have taken to Twitter with screenshots of the scam and asking for confirmation of authenticity.

Argos have confirmed they are aware of the scam and they are warning customers to be vigilant and not click on any URLs sent to them. A spokesperson from Argos said:

"Customers should always be mindful of phishing scams. These messages are not from Argos and we are advising customers to delete them."
