However, the convincing text is completely fake and uses a fake web address to get shoppers to enter their data.
A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said: “It’s said to appear genuine and the link to the website provided was: http://morrisons.uk-groceries.store/#.
“As you can see, the URL starts with just ‘HTTP’ which isn’t secure, always check you have HTTPS within your browser for the most secure way of browsing (this ‘S’ stands for secure).”
Users say the link works and looks genuine, but it then prompts shoppers to answer a series of questions and then share it via Whatsapp.
