Nestle 2022 Anniversary Phishing Scam : How Does It Work?
The Nestle 2022 Anniversary phishing scam is DANGEROUS. Please warn your family and friends to AVOID it.
Fact #1 : There Is No Such Nestle Giveaway!
There is no such anniversary giveaway by Nestle Malaysia. There is no reason for Nestle Malaysia to give out so much money.
They are a business, not a charity. They are in the business of selling you products, not giving you money.
Businesses do sponsor giveaway contests, but they are generally low value. Nestle Malaysia, for example, is currently giving away RM30 Shopee vouchers.
Fact #2 : Nestle Would Not Use Free Websites
Nestle is a large multinational company. It would not be using free website services like Wix.
Nestle Malaysia has its own website (https://www.nestle.com.my/) and Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Nestle.Malaysia) where they post official contests and promotions.
Always verify if a contest is genuine by visiting the official website / social media page.
Fact #3 : Nestle Would Never Ask For Pictures Of Your ATM Card!
Nestle, and any legitimate brand, would NEVER ask you to send them pictures of your bank ATM card!
Sending the pictures of your ATM card will allow them to clone the card, or trick bank staff into giving the scammers access to your bank account.
NEVER EVER SEND ANYONE PICTURES OF YOUR BANK ATM CARD!
Fact #4 : Nestle Would Never Ask You To Go To An ATM
No legitimate contest would require you to go to an ATM machine to receive money.
NEVER TRUST ANYONE WHO ASKS YOU TO GO TO AN ATM MACHINE.
Fact #5 : Nestle Would Never Ask For Your PIN / TAC
Nestle would never ask you for your ATM card’s PIN or any TAC number you may receive.
Giving out those details is how scammers get access to your bank account.
NEVER GIVE OUT YOUR PIN OR TAC NUMBER!
Fact #6 : This Lets Scammers Withdraw Money From Your Bank Account
I know many of us are in dire straits during this COVID-19 pandemic, having lost jobs, income or even loved ones.
Unfortunately, scammers are counting on our desperation to prey on us, using such anniversary scams.
This particular Nestle 2022 Anniversary Scam is a real danger, because it will allow scammers to gain access to your bank account and withdraw money.
