Desnoes & Geddes (D&G) has issued a warning to the public that a website is fraudulently attempting to entice individuals to hand over their information with the promise of prizes connecting to the company’s 100th anniversary.
“We are aware of a website purporting to represent Desnoes and Geddes 100th Anniversary while offering monetary prizes for the completion of a questionnaire,” D&G said in a statement.
“Neither Desnoes & Geddes (D&G) Limited nor any of our brands are associated with this website. We therefore urge the public to be vigilant in protecting their personal information to avoid phishing and internet fraud.”
D&G further noted that it celebrated 100 years of operations in 2018 and that it was not the company’s practice to carry out promotions that require consumers to submit personal information in the manner required by the website in question.
“We encourage persons who have received any such requests to delete them and report the matter to the police.”
