They have to complete an online survey to claim their gift box as they click on the link. If they win, they have to share their personal details and wallet details. Finally, they need to share the messages in the WhatsApp group.

Is Dmart Scam Message Fake or Legit?

According to cyber experts, it is a fake and scam and must be avoided. Online fraudsters attempt to steal the users’ confidential data by alluring them with free gifts and prize money.     

  • The fraudsters have attempted the same scam earlier in Feb 2021, claiming to offer gifts and rewards to DMart customers. 
  • Besides, the company was formed on 15th May 2002, and it is only a 19 years old company. So, it makes no sense to offer free gifts on the 20th Anniversary. So, avoid the Dmart Scam messages. 
  • We have found a video review with comments where users have confirmed that they have not received any money as claimed despite attempting the survey and sharing details.  

Based on these data, fraudsters are trying new methods to scam people and steal their confidential data. So, avoid such scam messages claiming to offer gift boxes and prize money.
