Woolworths has warned its customers of an email scam claiming to give away supermarket vouchers.
Rife on competition websites, and also targetting people via Facebook, the 'Customer Satisfaction Survey' uses the supermarket chain's logo and carries the title 'Get a Free $400, $150 or $100 Woolworths voucher' or 'Customer Satisfaction Survey'.
The survey ends by asking for the customer's contact details, and debit/credit account details.
Around 140 people have complained about the scam to the the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) over the past few weeks.
"'Phishing' scams imitate well-known brands to try to collect your personal information," Woolworths said in a statement.
"We have reported this scam to the ACCC's SCAM Watch, and you can find their advice about phishing scams and how to avoid them.
"We would never ask our customers for their personal or banking details in unsolicited communications.
"All of our official competitions run from our Facebook Page, and are posted on the 'Promotions & Competitions' page of our website.
"Please help us fight these scams and protect other consumers by reporting your experience to the ACCC."
A similar scam led to some Australians losing up to $1000 each, while others were signed up to premium SMS services which then charged for every text received.
