SINGAPORE - NTUC FairPrice has warned of a phishing scam that promises to give away $500 in vouchers to consumers who fill in an online survey.

The online survey, which uses NTUC FairPrice's logo, tells participants that they will get $500 of FairPrice shopping vouchers if they answer questions about their shopping habits then forward the link to 10 other contacts.

They are then asked to fill in their personal details. It has been circulating online and on WhatsApp.

"Please note that this is not created or endorsed by FairPrice and we advise our customers to be wary of such campaigns," NTUC said in a Facebook post on Tuesday (July 12).

Similar scams have been seen in the past, with one promising $500 in Ikea vouchers last year.
