Fake Zwitsal nappies competition

28 November 2017

Several advertisements are currently circulating on Facebook and in emails, inviting people to take part in a Zwitsal nappies competition. Don’t fall for these ads, they’re fake.

Some of the ads suggest that Zwitsal is seeking testers for nappies, other ads are about a trial pack that can be ordered.

Here’s an example from one of the emails about this fake competition (click for a larger view):

Our advice
Unilever, which owns Zwitsal, has nothing to do with these competitions. These ads have been conjured up by con artists looking to collect as much information from consumers as possible. They use this information for other advertising purposes. So, think twice before you take part in such a contest.
