I hope you have never ever been duped or fallen for any of the e-mail scams that hit your in-box each day. I mean, I would never send my info to claim some “prize” (plus I only ever enter contests where I can fly 1st class if I win)! However, with an alert from my local CVS rep, it seems that the latest scam is to:
“Purchase a Vanilla Reload for $500 to process your prize”!
Again, I can not dream of anyone allowing themselves to be tricked by one of these but the rep was very insistent that they have received the warring to let all customers know and ask them why they are buying a $500 reload card. I just said, no, I have other uses for them but appreciated her warning me and looking out for me.
From KLM & Delta Phishing e-mails to so many others, always please think before you click; be careful with any info you ever give anyone over the web or via email! Also be careful of the latest Instagram, Facebook or text to your phone scams. On a more positive note, and you are new to Delta Points blog, by PROPERLY using using Vanilla Reloads or Visa debit cards to help meet your spend on your last round of frequent flyer credit cards can be a great way to get this done without spending money on things you do not need. I buy thousands of dollars of Vanilla Reload cards each month and enjoy the points that go along with them and you should too! – René
