An e-mail has recently been sent out to a large number of people stating that they have won a competition and should send their information details to claim the prize.  This mail could look like it has come from Carlsberg but it hasn't. It is a hoax, there is no award to be won, and the company mentioned in the mail which is supposed to give the award, “Carlsberg Beer and Malta Breweries”, does not exist. Carlsberg has not authorised or played any role in relation to this fraud e-mail campaign.

You should under no circumstances send any bank details, personal information or even reply to the mail, as these details can be used to potentially gain access to your bank account.

Carlsberg has taken steps to find and prosecute the people responsible for this attempted fraud if possible. We deeply regret any inconvenience caused.
