Is Aldi grocery store giving away Christmas food boxes that contain £35 worth of groceries and a £15 Morrisons voucher? The answer to this question is NO.
We have had a lot of readers sending us mails about a supposed aldi free food box giveaway going viral on Facebook. The Facebook post claims every single person who shares and comments in the next 24hrs will get a Christmas Food Box delivered straight to their door on Saturday 28th November.
This is quite funny. Yes?
The question you should ask yourself is this; what is the already popular Aldi grocery store using my mere Facebook like and share for?
Please spare yourself the ‘This must be a Goodwill prompted by post COVID-19’ thought.

The Truth About Aldi Free Food Box Giveaway
When we checked the supposed page, we discovered it is a fake Aldi Facebook page. Going through the official Aldi grocery store websites both for US and UK Citizens, we realized they made no mention of the ongoing coupon giveaway to Loyal customers.
This shows this viral post is a scam, which was created by a fake Aldi page. They are simply playing with your intelligence. After sharing and commenting, you wouldn’t get anything.
How Does The Aldi Free Food Box Scam Works?
The Aldi Food Box scam is being used to trick Facebook users into commenting on or liking a fake post in order to make the post popular and gather up potential victims.
Once the scammers behind the fake post have enough Facebook users, they will start sending them spam (unsolicited messages) with links that will take potential victims to phishing websites that will steal their information, or malicious links that will take them to dangerous websites that will infect their computers with Spyware or Trojan horse.
The scammers may also send fraudulent messages claiming that their potential victims are so-called lottery winners and they need to send money in order to claim their prizes.
