30% OFF on All Stocks - - Reality of the Mail Containing Dan Murphy's 30% Discount Voucher

Beware! Its a Cyber World - - Summary:

A widely spreading email with a voucher offers recipients 30% off all products at Australian liquor outlet Dan Murphy's between 25th and 28th November 2010.

Readers might remember the same type of hoax was discussed here involving Red Robins (Happy Burger Day). In the same way, the current discount voucher is total fake and did not originate from Dan Murphy's. The offer is not valid and the voucher cannot be redeemed at Dan Murphy's stores.

Let's have a look to the mail contents and attached Dan Murphy's voucher image below here;

Subject: Fw: 30% off voucher at Dan Murphy's

Dan Murphy's

30% off all stock for Family and Friends 25th - 28th November 2010


Beware! Its a Cyber World - - Explanation:

A voucher currently circulating via email and online promises the recipient a 30% discount on all stock at Dan Murphy's, an Australian liquor store chain now owned by Woolworths. The voucher comes in the form of an attached .pdf and includes Dan Murphy's logos and seemingly official terms and conditions of use.

However, the voucher is fake and was not issued by Dan Murphy's. The company will not redeem the voucher. Dan Murphy's has published a notice on its website warning customers about the hoax voucher:

To avoid any disappointment, please be aware that a hoax flyer is being circulated that did not originate from Dan Murphy’s or Woolworths Ltd. The offer states that family and friends can receive 30% off all stock between 25-28 November.

It is currently unclear who is responsible for the creation and distribution of the fake voucher.
