ED Rewards Text Verification Code - is it a Scam?

ED Rewards Text Verification Code - is it a Scam?

I got a message from "Ed Rewards" saying: "3xxxxx is your verification code. This code is valid for 20min. If you didn't expect this SMS please call 1300 10 1234 (9am-7pm Mon-Fri, 10am-4pm Sat-Sun AEST)." Can someone tell me if the text is a scam?

    Scam. And, Woolworths will do nothing. Just another scam and a Big Company that couldn't care less about Australians privacy, security, or alignment with the Company.

    Greed. Your nothing and they do not care.

    I did my first delivery yesterday with Woolworths and received the same message what’s the code for?

    Had one. Spoke to my wife a BIGW and was trying to install something but the code was coming to me.

    I received it too but haven't purchased anything online from Woolies. I believe it's a scam too, best to block and delete

    So far today, 24 June 2022, I've received the verification code 4 times. I'm a teenager, and I'm not signed up for Woolworths online.

    Yes, looks like it’s a scam.

    I received the same message today on 28/1/22, but I didn't buy anything from woolworth today, is this a scam?

    Got the same text message today and April 2021 but did not previously sign up for woolies reward. I got 3 consecutive messages with different verification codes within a span of 5mins.

    I've never signed up for Woolworths online why am I getting this?

    Apparently some Woolworths related to the rewards card.

    I’ve had about 30 of these texts in the past 5 minutes! I have no idea what’s going on. Didn’t log in or anything I was just homeschooling my kids

    This is Woolworths Everyday Rewards requesting a verification code. They have a new login system where you can request a code before (instead of) putting in a password. I wonder if this is why some people are getting messages when not trying to log in?)
