Don't click! People warned of Cadbury prize scam spreading on Whatsapp

People in Louth are being warned to steer clear of a Cadbury chocolate competition scam doing the rounds on social media. 

Thousands of Irish people have reported receiving the dodgy link from friends on Whatsapp with users duped into thinking the competition is real.

The scam is hidden behind a TinyURL link people are prompted to click in order to submit answers to a survey and win a free Cadbury chocolate hamper.

Cadbury has advised people to ignore the link as it has nothing to do with them and is not legitimate.
