Aldi is not giving away £50 voucher for Facebook share. The Facebook post that says ‘Aldi has announced that anyone who shares this link will receive £50 voucher! Today Only!” is created by scammers.
Lots of people have complained about the ALDI £50 voucher giveaway post going viral on Facebook. Find out how this scam works, and how to avoid being a victim.
I stumbled on the Facebook yesterday, and I decided to play along to know what the guys behind the post are up to, and how they intend to gift me this voucher. First of all, the link isn’t that of the official Aldi website which is aldi.us. It was an odd looking website ‘aldi.co.uk.50uk .club’ which itself was a redflag.
When I clicked on the link I was taken to a fake website that looked very much like Aldi official website. There were a lot of comments from people who claimed to have won a voucher, however I knew they were not real. When I clicked on the profiles, it refused to load.
When I completed the survey, I didn’t receive any voucher even after sharing the said giveaway post.
