TRUE OR FALSE?

The claim is as dubious as the link. Nestlé India spokesperson told the The Quint that the link is fake.

WHAT WE FOUND OUT

The link asks the users to answer three questions:
1. Long, short or medium coffee
2. Only or with milk?
3. Will you suggest Nescafe to family and friends?

After answering all the questions, the link asks you to share the message with five groups or contacts on WhatsApp. Even if the answer to the last question is ‘No,’ it still says that the user has qualified to avail the offer.

Further, spokesperson of Nestlé India told The Quint that the company has not issued any such offer.

“This promotion is not being driven by Nestlé or its affiliates. While we take measures to address this, we urge our consumers to treat this as spam.”
