Instagram advert

(Brandon Billingham) #1

Is this company allowed to use your card in their advert? Made me think you were somehow connected. Awful targeted advertising as I don’t have any need for a card machine :roll_eyes:

Advert goes here

Monzo in random Ads
Card Machine Prices (Instagram Advert)

It’s been reported already on an earlier thread a few weeks ago - looks like they’re back in action…

Oh and surprise, it’s a scam. :joy:

Has anyone seen any adverts where monzo has been featured? I came across one today on instagram image

(Herp Derp) #4

Yeah this was mentioned a few weeks ago

Pretty sure we didn’t give permission for this - I’ve seen it a few times myself and agree that it’s not a good look. I’ll look into it and see what we can do!

Yeah It really doesn’t look good at all, I’m not even in the market for a card reader so target audience is abit all over the place…

I assume Monzo have give them permission to use their card on this Instagram advert? :eyes:


(Tony Hoyle) #8

Do they need to? Free advertising for monzo :stuck_out_tongue:


What’s that ad about? I’m curious. Tried looking up their username on Instagram but they have zero posts on their account, quite weird for a legitimate business trying to sell their stuff. Feels like a scam.

Oh yeah no doubt about that, just felt it didn’t look right being endorsed next to a chip and pin solutions business.

And it shows a WorldPay-branded terminal, but I doubt anything that amateur is WorldPay. Someone trying to get referrals?

(Adam Kendrew) #12

It links through to a website of the same name (.com). The fact they’ve also poorly blurred out the data on the card just shouts amateur as @GalaxyMergirl pointed out. I mean why not use a generic vector?

Anyhow…just thought I’d post as it was the Monzo card that grabbed my attention! :sunglasses:

Good news everyone! After flagging this with our legal team, we reached out to the company in question and they’ve agreed to remove our card from the advert :grinning:
