Coles $500 Gift Card Facebook scam

Another Facebook scam to watch out for, this time a misrepresentation of the Coles brand that suggests users can receive a $500 Gift Card for Christmas by entering some personal details.

The rogue status update looks similar to the screenshot below:

According to comments on Facebook clicking the link has varied outcomes ranging from being asked to complete personal details like mobile phone numbers to populating the affected customer’s profile with the hoax status update.

In a statement on their Facebook page Coles said: “Please be aware the “Free $500 Gift Card for Coles” link to ikeazoneinfo that appeared on Facebook and was distributed via email last night is a hoax and that Coles did not create or endorse this website. We issued a warning on our page as soon as this came to our attention.”

The full Coles status update with more information on what they suggest customers do if they have been tricked by this hoax can be found here: http://www.facebook.com/coles/posts/226790620718294

Prevention Health Tracker updates for Australia’s Biggest Health Check Month

Earlier this week we launched a big update to Pacific Magazines’ Your Prevention Health Tracker app to coincide with Australia’s Biggest Health Check month.


The Health Tracker already provides customers with tools to monitor weight, waist measurements and calories consumed/burned and features a variety of charts and visual aids to help track progress.

For Australia’s Biggest Health Check Month we have also added new tools to track meal portions, fruit and vegetable intake, stress levels, water intake and even a sexual satisfaction tracker. Plus there’s a new ‘tips’ module that gives you real-time feedback on your progress and help on how to achieve your goals during Health Check Month.

It’s just a matter of minutes to setup a profile and using the tracker is completely free. Check it out at http://www.preventionhealthtracker.com.au/
