Lidl has urged their customers not to fall for a text scam, saying, "this isn't us!"

The supermarket giant issued the warning after people were sent texts claiming to be the retailer, which promises a generous prize for the recipient

The Lidl Ireland shared a screenshot of the hoax on their Facebook page.

The "scam" text said: "Happy Wednesday! There is a big surprise package waiting for you! Last reminder to pick it up."

It also features a UPS link to click into.

However, the German retailer warned people not to trust it.

They wrote: "Please watch out for this scam going round by text! Don’t engage with this as it isn’t us!"
