First discovered in mid-March this year, the con leads consumers to believe they have £3 off Benson and Hedges products.

All retailers have been advised to refuse the voucher and to immediately report the incident to the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline
It is also recommended that any CCTV footage of the attempted use should be retained to help any investigation that may be pursued.
Retailers should contact the Citizens Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 040506
