“The company became aware of the scam earlier today when an employee questioned the validity of the post,” Jo Natale, Wegmans vice president of media relations, said. “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.”

“We’re actively working to have this fraudulent post removed from Facebook. We urge consumers not to click it, share it, or provide any personal information,” Natale said.
