$100 Kohl’s Coupon Is a Scam
Last week, we told you about an online scam that involved a fake $75 Costco coupon. Now, Kohl's is warning customers that a $100 "anniversary coupon" is also a fake.
According to today.com, this scam is circulating on Facebook. A post tells users that if they take a brief survey, they will be awarded a $100 coupon.
A Kohl's spokesperson told today.com, "This offer did not come from Kohl's or any of our authorized partners."
Today.com says that the fake survey is used to get unsuspecting users to give scammers information like "email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, and even sometimes credit card numbers."
Security experts warn that if something appears to be too good to be true, it probably is.
