I received an email/sms from Kellogg's® saying I had won a cash prize. Is this email/sms legitimate and from Kellogg's®?
The Kellogg Company of South Africa has recently been made aware of emails/SMS’s that are being circulated to the public, which falsely claim that the recipient has won a large cash prize in a Kellogg's Corn Flakes promotion. The communication claims to be sent by, or on behalf of Kellogg, and may make use of the Kellogg Company name/brand. These hoax communications are intended to defraud the recipient, or to deceive the individual into disclosing sensitive personal information. All legitimate winners of Kellogg's competitions are notified telephonically and we never request fees in order to claim a prize. If you have any concerns with regards to the validity of a campaign, please contact our Consumer Affairs department on :0860 200 601.
