Scammers posing as Kentucky Fried Chicken are luring victims with false promises of a free $100 KFC gift card. Emails mimicking the fast food chain have led consumers to believe they would receive the prize after completing an online survey. While KFC’s logo may be displayed in the message, BBB warns that scammers are at work for your personal information.
One victim complained to BBB that instead of receiving the gift card, she received numerous calls from telemarketers.
The sender, firstname.lastname@example.org is not associated with KFC, its vendors or surveyors. If this phishing scheme lands into your inbox, BBB suggests filing a complaint with the FBI at www.ic3.gov.
