Lulu stated that all real offers will be shared on the retailer’s official social media.
LuLu Group International, a UAE-based retailer, has urged community members not to fall victim to fake websites with fraudulent activities.
Links to fake websites are circulating on social media platforms. The website attracts people with “LuLu Hypermarket 20th Anniversary Celebration” discounts and has a set of questionnaires. Once someone answers questions about how much they know about Lulu, what they think of the brand, and enter their age, a new page with a box will open. There are 3 attempts to choose the right box, the so-called prize-Huawei Mate 40 Pro. However, to receive the prize, the person needs to share the so-called contest with 20 friends or 5 groups on WhatsApp.
LuLu Group International Marketing and Communications Director V. Nandakumar pointed out that the website and event are fake.
“Unfortunately, such fraudsters keep coming back with new tricks. We have notified the relevant authorities about this issue. We urge our loyal customers not to visit such fake websites. In addition, we hope that our customers will never share any personal information, The bank account or card number or any other suspicious links on such websites,” Nandakumar said.
He added that any real offers will be posted on the retailer’s official social media accounts.
