Costco Text messages claim you have won an iPhone, Airpods, or reward coupon in the annual raffle draw. It’s a scam. Costco does not give out coupons or raffle prizes at the moment.

This review will expose all you need to know about the Costco raffle text and reward coupon scams, as well as why they are fraudulent.

What is the Costco Raffle Prize Scam?

Fraudsters are using the giveaway message to steal your financial and personal information. How does it work? Before they can claim their prize, they must provide their credit card information.

These scammers will take every dollar from your bank account if you do. They are not the legitimate Costco company and don’t have an iPhone or Airpod.
