    Thank for letting us know.

    Any advice for people who have sent it on to a handful of friends via WhatsApp before realising it's a scam and divulging any personal info? Or does the very fact that it's been forwarded via their platform put people at risk?

      I have this question. Never gave any personal info but when I didn’t have enough contacts to end it to I googled and realised it wasn’t a scam, this is what happens when you trust friends that things are genuine 🙈

    I don't get how people could be so silly in accepting it and come on DeWalt? Your better off doing it by hand

    Thanks for confirming my suspicions. I always check any link that ends in ".ru" before clicking on it!

    Looks like a scam from Russia.

      No. The aim is to trick you into submitting your information.

        I just read that they try and make you pay £1.75 for a voucher (not sure what for - the prize?) and then have your bank details.
