Does Lowe’s give away $100 gift cards via email?
In early 2022, we reviewed scam emails that displayed the name and logo of home improvement store chain Lowe’s and promised a $100 gift card to each person completing a survey.
A subject line read, “You have been randomly selected!” Another said: “Your email has been selected!” Both emails showed a white $100 gift card with a Lowe’s logo:
The body of the email read as follows:
You can get a $100 Lowe’s gift card

It was all a scam. The link in the email led to the Russian website souldatabase.ru. The mailing address listed at the bottom of the email appeared to be unrelated to Lowe’s. We saw the same Russian website and mailing address in a similar scam we covered about UPS. It is unclear how the address could be linked to the email scam.
We previously reported another email scam involving Lowe’s that was somewhat similar to this one.
