Grocery company Kroger is warning customers about an unauthorized coupon that’s circulating widely across social media websites.

The post that allegedly gives people a coupon states that people must first take part in a short survey and will then receive a coupon.

Kroger, however, stated that it does not have any such giveaway and is not supporting one.

“Attention Kroger Customers: There is currently an unauthorized ‘$250 Kroger Shopping Coupon’ circulating across social media. This giveaway is not affiliated with or supported by the Kroger Company. We recommend not engaging with the site or providing any personal information. Our team is actively working to address this issue,” Kroger stated in a post on Facebook.

The survey asks people for personal information, which Kroger warned people should not give.

Some users said the survey was easy to spot as a scam.

“I saw this and immediately knew it was a scam,” said one.

“I’m confused about how people think Kroger would stay in business if they gave away $250 ‘coupons’ away,” said another. “It’s common sense, people.”

“Just AMAZING how many of these fake ‘coupons’ people fall for … they whine about their privacy, but will give some random website their contact info every time, if they think they’re going to get something free,” added another. “smh [shaking my head].”
