Scam Wilko sale targets Kent resident
After purchasing items from the Wilko closing down sale on Facebook, they realised it was a scam when they did not get a confirmation email.
Scammers love to use events in the news to target you with their fraud.
The best way to ensure you do not fall victim to this particular scam is to not buy anything from sites purporting to be Wilko online, as Wilko is no longer offering online sales.
Always check the website URL when shopping online.
Copycat websites often have similar URLs to the legitimate sites, but with very slight differences.
