About Publix Corporate Governance

Q: I received a check that appears to be from Publix, and the letter that came with it says I won a lottery or was chosen to be a mystery shopper.  Is this a genuine check?

A: No. Publix Super Markets is aware of several consumer check-cashing and wire transfer scams.  If you have received any unsolicited communication that includes a check that appears to be from Publix, or instructions to wire money pertaining to an alleged Publix-sponsored lottery or promotion, please contact our Publix Consumer Relations Department at (800) 242-1227 or complete a Contact Us form on our website. 

If you don't know why Publix would send a check to you, then don't cash or deposit the check.

You can help protect yourself from fraud by considering the following:

  • Never send money to a stranger using a money transfer service. 
  • Beware of deals or opportunities that seem too good to be true. 
  • Don't use money transfer services to pay for things like online auction purchases. 
  • Never send money to pay for taxes or fees on foreign lottery winnings.
