Milka’s Free Easter Chocolate Basket announces the message that many people have received via WhatsApp in recent days. Far from the content of the message, the link that appears there should put the flea in the ear: the ending “.ru” indicates a Russian address to which the chocolate brand is not associated.
On its website, Milka warns consumers that they may receive invitations to mock contests. “This activity was not initiated by us, and our Milka brand is not associated with this at all. They are only acting for the purpose of obtaining personal data in order to contact the participants afterwards,” says the brand.
“The International Milka or Mondelez competitions that are held www.milka.com / www.milka.be / Other Milka websites or through our social media accounts always make clear the terms of participation, privacy policies and identity of the relevant Mondelēz International entity. If the sender is not Mondelz, if the information is unclear or missing, we do not recommend sharing your personal data! ‘, she concludes.
