NYLON – Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is alerting consumers to a scam that involves a fraudulent Facebook post bearing the company’s name.
According to a press release from Wegmans, the company became aware of the scam earlier today when an employee questioned the validity of the post.
“We’re actively working to have this fraudulent post removed from Facebook,” said Jo Natale, Vice President of Media Relations for Wegmans. “We urge consumers not to click it, share it, or provide any personal information.”
The Facebook post shows the image of a Wegmans storefront with a false claim that the company is giving away a free $200 grocery coupon. This giveaway is neither affiliated with nor supported by Wegmans.
