Costco and Retail Scams

Published:  September 28, 2018

Many scammers take advantage of our familiarity with well know businesses and their logos so that you think you are receiving an email from a store that you may do business with. Costco and many other businesses have information on their websites regarding scams and how to avoid them.

Be cautious of any survey, coupon or pop up saying you have won a contest that requires you to provide personal information unless you have verified that it is actually from the company by checking their website or calling not by clicking links in an email that was sent to you.

Costco reports that fictitious job offers have been sent to individuals by email. Costco Wholesale does not extend job offers via email to individuals with whom it has had no prior contact.
