Yesterday we had an email which was supposedly from Argos offering an amazing €500 euro voucher once you follow certain links on the email,This is nothing but a scam and something to watch out for,On going through the links it also then asks you to subscribe to a subscription service called madprizes dot com  which users will be shafted by weekly/monthly subscriptions you will see pictured below just dont give any information at all. On the other-hand the original first link brings you todayluckyvisitors (Adware) and clicking here you will be asked a few questions like how far is your local store and how often do you shop there and so on eventually bringing you to the first named site. One thing to note here is DO NOT CLICK UNSUBSCRIBE…. Do nothing just delete the email.

As per usual just ignore and delete this is not true and we have spoken to Argos about this today and they are investigating the matter as we speak..This scam has also recently been news in the UK too so beware and be alert.
