Yesterday, I received an email (shown here) - telling me that I might be the lucky recipient of a $2000 Bunnings gift card!
It had all the 'official' looking branding that you'd expect to see from Bunnings, so looked very authentic.
Usually, I only receive emails like this at my 'business' email addresses, which anyone can find via the iTandCoffee website. (I do receive quite a few dodgy emails every day.)
But this one came to my more private home email address - one that doesn't normally get scam or spam emails. This is why I took a bit more notice of it.
It is yet another scam from someone pretending to be Bunnings (similar to one we reported last year) - a phishing email aimed at getting you to give away private information, perhaps even financial information, and passwords.
Bunnings confirms on its website that any such emails are completely fraudulent and should be deleted immediately.
Once again, the rule is to be suspicious of EVERY email that tries to get you to click on their link/s and enter password or private information, or want you to click on an attachment in the email.
