Warning! That $100 Kroger Coupon on Facebook Is Fake

That $100 Kroger (KR) coupon that’s been showing up on Facebook (FB) isn’t real.

Barron_s_Bounce__Kroger__Littelfuse__eBay.jpgThe $100 Kroger coupon that’s been making the rounds on Facebook claims to work if users share it and purchase $110 worth of groceries. However, Kroger has officially come out to denounce the coupon on its Facebook page, reports WLWT Cincinnati.

The $100 Kroger coupon is a scam that hopes to get access to Facebook users’ personal information. It’s also possible that it could lead to users subscribing to subscription services without meaning to. Facebook is working to block all post of the coupon on its site, WLWT Cincinnati notes.

The $100 Kroger coupon isn’t the only scam like this that has hit Facebook. In May, Lowe’s (LOW) was the target of a fake coupon scam and Target (TGT) was also victim to a similar scam in February, reports WCPO.
