Customers at Svalbardbutikken and other members of the Coop supermarket chain are being targeted by a scheme involving e-mails and text messages claiming to be surveys or contest-winner announcements that request personal data.

“These fraud reports often ask you to give credit card and account information,” a message posted on Svalbardbutikken’s Facebook page notes.

“Coop will never request such information by e-mail or SMS. If you have received such a message, we ask you to delete the message and not to tap any of the links in the message.
If you have provided information after receiving a fraudulent notice and are experiencing withdrawal of funds from an account and/or getting credit/personal information, we recommend that you block your bank card and report the matter.”

About Post Author

Mark Sabbatini

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
