Stop Sharing the ALDI Free Groceries Post – It’s A Scam
If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Actually, in this case, it DEFINITELY is.
A few of my friends shared this post over the weekend. And a few of their friends commented that the post is likely a hoax, which they acknowledged...and then shared it anyway.
The post was allegedly from the CEO of ALDI, Jason Hart. It promised a box of food to anybody who shared and commented on the post, straight to your door.
We wish that we didn't have to say it, but it's a scam. We saw people sharing it who claimed that they knew it was a scam, but they shared it anyway, saying, "Well, just in case!"
The problem is when you share it because "just in case," somebody else doesn't know that it's a scam, and they're giving out their personal information to scammers.
When you see something like this, do your homework - go to the page that shared it. Do they have a blue checkmark? Have they shared anything else on their page? When was the page started and what's the country of origin?
It shouldn't take long to realize that it's a scam, and PLEASE don't share "just in case." The more you share, the more people think that it's a legitimate page, and the more people who offer up sensitive, personal information.
In other words, do the OPPOSITE of what Nike says.
