This afternoon we received call from a prospective customer asking where they could input the ‘promo code’ they had just copied from a coupon site called http://www.lpcoupon.com/.
Sadly NRG IT Ltd does not partake in any coupon or discount scheme, so we immediately investigated the subject and found out that this is part of a web scam.
We are not entirely sure what the scammers are looking to gain from this activity. We assume they are getting visitors to click on the links stating ‘Claim your code here’, at which point they install an advertising cookie or something of that nature on to your device. They then sell that data to other companies willing to purchase the data to then follow you around the web advertising their products and services to you.
On further investigation we found a couple of links highlighting the growing problem here:
So to clarify NRG IT Ltd do not partake in any form of coupon or *online discount scheme. We sell our products at such great value prices that we rarely have any more room to discount.
*We do have a trade department that can discuss discounts for bulk purchases if you are trade.
Please give us a call on 01202 578807 if you wish to enquire further.
