Cadbury Easter egg scam: What to do if you get a WhatsApp message offering a free Easter chocolate basket

Why Park Güell? It’s a public park system composed of gardens and architectural elements located on Carmel Hill. It's a must see for any traveler in Barcelona.

It comes with a picture of an Easter egg with Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt, which is similar to a promotion the company is doing in real life, written on it. It claims that there are 5,000 free gifts to be won.

Accompanying it is a shortened URL link, that looks like it could be Russian due to its use of .ru instead of or .com.

It is recommended that you do not click on the link, enter any personal information, or send the message to anyone.

Some recipients have taken to Twitter to warn others, with one saying: “Had this sent to me from loads of family members on WhatsApp this morning. 

A Free Cadbury Chocolate Basket! Spreading like wildfire with a shortened Russian URL. Probably worth telling your folks not to click it..”

“Customer security is our priority and we’re working with the relevant organisations to ensure this is resolved.”
