Stop & Shop Hoax – Richard
In case you haven't heard by now, everything on the internet is not legit! Seems a coupon for a popular supermarket chain that has been circulating on-line is proof of that.
The Massachusetts-based Stop & Shop has issued a statement warning Facebook users to avoid a $75 coupon that pops up occasionally saying it's a phony. Stop & Shop says the coupon cannot be redeemed at it's stores and they urge customers not to share any personal information with the pranksters responsible for the bogus coupon.
Like many things on the internet this coupon is just too good to be true. Internet users should always be cautious when a deal just looks too good because it usually is. Think about it, if Stop & Shop were giving everyone $75 dollars off of their grocery bill they probably wouldn't be in business for very long.
Sorry, to be the bearer of bad news :)
