    Watch out for Nectar text message scam.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 14 Aug 2018, 12:01 pm

    Watch out for Nectar text message scam doing the rounds asking card holders to log-in online to double points.

    Text appears to have a link to Nectar's log-in page.

    Card holders are told they will be able to double their points by just logging in.

    Fraudulent text falsely claims it's to celebrate Nectar's 10th anniversary.

    Nectar told card holders to delete the text.

    This sounds like a very dangerous scam as it is so easy to be caught up in it.

    As I do not have a Nectar account any communication from them would be met with suspicion. Anyway, thanks for the edge upPaps.

    Many people just accept the Nectar card when it is offered as it seems like a good idea at the time.

    Now we know that it is not a good idea at all.

    I do not think that there is actually anything wrong about the REAL Nectar card, I use it all the time.

    What is wrong here is that THIS Nectar card is fake and should be treated as such.

    Correct Angie.

    Maybe the true Nectar site could do more to protect people from the fake ones.
