JTI voucher scam

A SCAM has been operating in stores in the West Midlands in which consumers have used a voucher claiming to offer consumers £5 off purchases of JTI tobacco products. 
JTI has confirmed that the voucher is not provided by, affiliated with or in any way related to JTI UK and, therefore, is a scam. 
A company spokesman said: “We would advise all retailers in the UK, upon being presented with this voucher, to refuse to accept it as a valid form of payment and to immediately contact their local Trading Standards department]. If CCTV footage of the attempted use of the voucher is available this should be retained to help any investigation that Trading Standards may wish to pursue.”
