Asda Direct has warned customers to beware of an email circulating telling people they have been “rewarded” with an “Asda Shopping Gift Card”.
Asda issued the warning after several reports of people receiving an email asking recipients to click a link to apply for a Gift Card worth between £50 and £1,000.
The email reads:
Hello dear customer

The supermarket issued a warning, saying: "Please be aware this email has not been published by Asda. We'd encourage you not to follow the link or forward the mail on." It added: "Please always be very careful with your personal information online and do not respond unless you are confident that the source is genuine."
