Unilever Foundation is a scam

16th August 2010

Unilever is warning that fraudsters are behind a bogus charity going by the name of ‘Unilever Foundation’, which claims to be raising money for good causes.

Unilever Foundation has no links to Unilever and is using the company’s logo and brands illegally. The fraudsters are using a website and emails to take money from victims.

Don’t respond to Unilever Foundation emails

Unilever is encouraging anyone who is emailed by someone saying they are from the Unilever Foundation not to respond, but to forward on details directly to Unilever.

Anyone who has lost money to a fraud like this should report it to Action Fraud.
