The John Lewis stores are very well known across the UK with more than 40 department stores and hundreds of Waitrose supermarkets.
So, an email from someone claiming to work for John Lewis and asking us to provide our products to the stores group is surprising, but obviously a scam.
The grammar is reasonable but a little odd e.g. “Indeed we are interested in your products, we would like to know if you can provide them”.
The message sender claims to be a “Senior Executive Purchase” at John Lewis but his email address is a Gmail account.
The scammer has created a fake email address at johnlewispartnerships.com, but that is not John Lewis at all.
Just a dumb scammer with a simple lying message, looking for gullible people to reply.
If you are in business and are unsure whether such an email offering to do business with you is fake or real – lookup the real contact details for the business and contact them directly, but never reply to unsolicited emails or text messages.
