If you have received an email claiming to be from Coca-Cola saying you’ve won $500,000 in a recent promotion, Royal Cayman Islands Police advise not responding – it’s another scam.
RCIPS Chief Inspector Claudia Brady released a copy of the email, which is circulating in the Cayman Islands, purportedly sent by Coke.
“The people who send out these emails only need one or two people to fall for their scam to make it all worthwhile,” Ms Brady said. “Anyone who looks at the attached letter will see that it is very poor quality, not something that you would expect to be circulated from a company such as Coca-Cola. If you receive such a letter please ignore it or you will lose out financially.”
Anyone who requires any advice about how to spot an Internet scam should contact the Financial Crime Unit on 949-8797.
