facebook giftcard scam

lululemon facebook scam

Dear guests,

Please be aware of a series of ads on Facebook and multiple other non-lululemon websites claiming to give away $500 lululemon gift cards. THESE ADS ARE NEITHER AFFILIATED WITH NOR AUTHORIZED BY lululemon.

The ads ask for your cell phone number, and then charge a daily fee to your phone. lululemon athletica does not sell (or give away) gift cards through third party vendors. If you see a gift card for sale through a non-lululemon dealer (online or offline), please do NOT give them your number.

If you have entered your number to this scam, you should call your cell phone provider to have the text messages stop and report them as spam. You can also report the ads to Facebook by giving them a "thumbs down" symbol below the ad itself. (See image below)

thumbs down

Our asset protection and legal teams are working on this issue and the ads have been reported to Facebook as a violation of their Terms of Use. If you have any further questions on this matter, please contact our GEC by telephone 1.877.263.9300, email gec@lululemon.com, or visit our discussion forum on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/topic.php?topic=9922&uid=33693527731

Ugh, I totally went for that last week. Now there’s a 10$ charge on my cell phone bill, even though I cancelled the “service” as soon as I read the fine print. I thought it was a really weird marketing scheme from Lululemon, and I’m glad to know it was a fake.

There’s an ad on FB for ages 18-21 also. That’s the one I got scammed for. Ugh..I did the same as Ophelie, but still got scammed $10.

Dear Ophelie

Since you found this marketing scheme weird, but you still went for it…this means even weird schemes can pull you towards it, and if it actually benefits you then the image becomes stronger and you feel happy and tell others about it.

I am happy to see that people are that much associated with lulu lemon :). I have also seen these ads but decided to visit the outlet and avail this opportunity through them.
