POLICE are warning people about a gift card scam designed to steal personal information.

Action Fraud says in the last 48 hours it has received 159 reports about fake emails, that pretend to be from ASDA.

The emails state that the recipient can win a "£100 promo reward gift card" by completing a marketing survey.

But police warn: "The links provided in the emails lead to phishing websites that are designed to steal your personal information.

"Your bank, or any other official organisation, won't ask you to share personal information over email or text.

"If you need to check that it's a genuine message, call them directly."

Anyone who wants to report a suspicious email is asked to forward it to report@phishing.gov.uk.
