Fast-food chain issues hoax warning

5:19 pm on 21 June 2010

Fast-food chain McDonald's is warning people not to be taken in by a hoax customer survey.

The bogus email tells participants they can win a car or petrol vouchers if they answer questions about McDonald's food and service and then asks for credit card numbers.

It's the 10th time in the past 12 months that the chain has been hit by an email scam in New Zealand.

McDonald's communication assistant, Kelly Gunn, says police have been notified. It issued a warning on Monday after becoming aware that the bogus email had gained momentum.
