Beware of "BOOTS Gift Card" Spam Emails

Beware of "BOOTS Gift Card" Spam Emails

If you are asked to complete the "BOOTS Survey" below, please do not participate in it, because it is a trick to get online users to purchase products, services, complete questionnaires or surveys, by pretending to offer them free rewards which are actual advertisements. The fake survey or invitation is not associated with BOOTS' and the website that displays the survey will receive compensation for the products or services that they have tricked online users into purchasing. Therefore, online users are asked to delete emails that they have received asking them to take the same BOOTS' survey below, because they will not receive the free products or services they have been promised.

Please continue reading below.

The main purpose of the fake survey is to make online users think they will get a reward for taking it, but the rewards shown at the end of the survey are advertisements that the people who have created the survey will get paid for, once the online users purchase the products or services that are being advertised.

    It would help if you showed the address these e mails come from. I have received a couple from boots@email.boots.com that sound like similar fraudulent e mails. Can you confirm that this isn't a genuine Boots email address please?

      We will do that, but remember, email addresses can be spoofed. This means you cannot rely on an email address to determine if the email is fake or not.

      You will have to look at the email headers to do, which is a little tech savvy.

      I can send an email to you and make it appear as if it came from the president by spoofing the email address.

      So, send us the email you have received so we can check the headers.

      For more information about email spoofing, search for it using our Search engine at the top of the page.

    I received an email from "Boots" this morning. It claimed "Congratulations with your gift card, today only. 500 Euros Gift Card. Let us treat you."

    I'm so glad I checked online first. I was tempted to "Claim"
