Over the past few months, fraudulent coupons offering bogus deals from popular grocery stores including Publix, Aldi, and Kroger have been making their rounds on Facebook, and other social media sites. Innocent consumers who clicked on these posts, offering savings like "$100 off your purchase of $120 or more," were required to fill out a survey containing valuable personal information in order to be eligible to receive the coupon. Not only was the coupon a fake, the link to the coupon may have contained viruses and malware with the potential to attack a computer and extract sensitivepersonal information. 

These coupon scams are a simple way for thieves to gain access to your personal information, which could lead to identity theft. Before clicking on a coupon, consider following these tips from The Sun-Sentinel to avoid getting "clipped".
