Hyundai, Budget warn of prize scam
DON'T BE DUPED: Hyundai SA has warned of a scam which lures victims by telling them they've won a new Getz.
Hyundai SA has warned against a scam involving it and Budget Insurance to lure victims who are led to believe they’ve won a new car.
The offending material being circulated purports to be from Hyundai and states that the person has won a 1.4 Hyundai Getz.
It then urges the “winner” to contact Budget Insurance to receive a 6.5 percent discount on their monthly insurance premium for the first two years.
Albrecht Grundel, operations director at Hyundai SA, said: “Hyundai is not currently running any competition with Budget Insurance.”
He asked that any person informed that they were “randomly selected” from the Hyundai database to win a car report the incident to the company’s call centre on 086 142 7222.
The police have been informed of the matter.
