I received a phone text message today from VM (?) offering me a free coffee and cake on them at any Cafe Rouge outlet. The message provided a link to VM to receive a voucher. And details how to stop receiving offer details in future from VM on my phone eg type NO to a 5 or 6 digit number.
As I have never received any VM offers of upgrades or special offers via ipad/phone or mobile ever during my 20 years of being a customer, including 10 as a VM mobile user I took this to be a scam. I checked but have never ticked the box to not receive marketing emails etc.
I deleted the text - it had left out the odd word or two, so didn’t read correctly in one or two places. But it looked convincing. Is it for real? Has anyone received a similar email?
I've had a closer look and the offer ended on Friday.
The deal should only be available to those using the Virgin Red app and if the URL didn't work we were advising customers to go into the app and verify the account and they would have been able to get the voucher from there.
