Lulu Group has already filed an official complaint with the authorities against the fraudsters.
There is no dearth of fake promotions that scamsters use to swindle money from gullible residents in the UAE.
A new scam doing the rounds is the one supposedly from the Lulu group. Shoppers are receiving messages that they can win shopping vouchers worth Dh300 to Dh500 from Lulu for its 18th anniversary. Many residents have received this message in the past few days.
Warning its customers, Lulu has circulated an advisory asking the public not to fall prey to the fake messages.
The notification read:
“We have come to know about some incidents of attempted frauds in the name of Lulu, where the callers have identified themselves as calling on behalf of Lulu and tried to obtain certain personal and financial information of the persons, including their bank account and bank card details with the intent of defrauding them with false news of winning a prize or with some offers at Lulu”.
“Lulu Group hereby declares that it never contacts and has not authorized anyone to contact its customers or common public for their banking, credit card or any similar details”.
“The public at large is advised to exercise extreme caution while dealing with anyone asking for their bank card or other personal details and report the matter to the concerned authorities. Lulu Group has already lodged an official complaint with the concerned police authorities against such fraudsters.”
