Lidl Ireland issues urgent warning to customers over text message scam

“Anything received via text message is most definitely a scam.”

Lidl Ireland has warned customers not to open any text messages purported to have been sent by the company.

In posts on its official Twitter account on Friday, Lidl Ireland said that offers or information to customers are not communicated to customers via text and that any text messages received by customers are “most definitely a scam.”

Speaking to JOE, a spokesperson for Lidl said: “We are aware of a recent text message scam that has been circulating which has no association with Lidl. We advise that you do not engage with any such texts.

“Lidl takes the protection of personal data very seriously and will only ever contact customers directly via email, provided they have registered for our newsletter and consented to this. Similarly, please only ever enter our social media competitions through our official Facebook or Twitter accounts, which are verified a blue tick.

“If you have any concerns regarding suspicious texts which claim to be sent from Lidl, please call our Customer Service team on 1800 201080.”
