Someone is scamming your customers by posting a fake page and stealing your posts and videos to claim it's the official page.
When they click like they have to enter a mobile number and it signs them up to a subscription service
Just letting you know in case you can shut them down and avoid complaints
Page is called Kmart AU
If you need screen shots I have them your wall just won't let me attach :)
And, Kmart responded saying the following:
