The fake ‘offer’ poses as a $200 JB Hi-Fi gift voucher.
The retailer announced on its Facebook page this weekend that a deal offering $200 gift vouchers was a scam, and that customers should ignore it.
“Hey guys, be careful with the holidaygiveaway voucher site. We have reason to believe it’s a scam so beware.”
The third party site asks users to add a comment on its Facebook company site in return for the voucher.
The retailer has been inundated with queries from customers already from the apparent freebie from myholidaysvouchers.info, said JB’s Marketing boss, Scott Browning.
“We’ve spoken to Facebook but I don’t think they have any control over it,” Browning told media today.
Bowning said the offending site is a fake site from the Bahamas region.
