Online Chick-fil-A Gift Card Scam Continues to Target Consumers
A $500 Chick-fil-A gift card is offered to those who complete a short online questionnaire
An online scam is continuing to target Chick-fil-A fans nationwide through email, social media, and other platforms.
Consumers who click on the "ad" are prompted to answer a few questions, some of which ask for personal information. In return for submitting answers to the questions, it claims that you will receive a complimentary $500 Chick-fil-A gift card.
Scammers Want Your Information
Think this sounds too easy and too good to be true? You are CORRECT!
This is not a generous giveaway from Chick-fil-A. It is merely an attempt by con artists to obtain personal and financial information from unsuspecting consumers. That sensitive information could then be used for a number of nefarious purposes including stealing money, committing fraud, or perpetuating identity theft.
Statement from Chik-fil-A
The following is a statement that was posted on the official Chik-fil-A Facebook page when this scam first surfaced:
Hey Chick-fil-A fans, please be aware that there is a fictitious marketing campaign circulating the internet which asks for personal information in return for $500 Chick-fil-A gift cards.
