SuperValu warns customers of scam doing the rounds in Ireland

The supermarket issued a statement on Twitter last night.

SuperValu took to social media last night to inform its customers of a scam taking place around the country.

The scam, which involves a text message, has been catching customers out this week.

The food retailer said: "We want to issue a warning after receiving reports from members of the public of a text message scam that claims to offer prizes by asking them to click on a link and take a survey or by sharing personal data.

"This has NOT been issued by SuperValu and we advise to delete the text message if you have received it as it is a phishing scam. SuperValu never sends out competitions or data requests by text, so please be vigilant and delete the text if you have received it."

The text message that customers have received is offering vouchers for the shop and asks people to click on a link and fill out a survey with your personal information.
