Costco officials say this isn't the first time a fake coupon associated with their company has been circulated, and they thanked their social media followers for alerting them to the hoax. The site found that duped users were then led to a page where they forked up personal information, sometimes even including a credit card number.
The scam posts, which have been circulating on Facebook this week, show an image of what appears to be a Costco coupon for $75 along with links to third-party websites not affiliated with the retailer.Читайте также: Rep. Peter King to exit Congress
Snopes warned that giving away personal information is not the only source of danger.
Costco's website also warns of other scams including fake checks, fraudulent phone calls and a fake email campaign that the company is offering them a job. However, don't fall for it, it's all a massive scam, the company said on Tuesday. Facebook users attempting to claim free products are "victimized by a Facebook 'life-jacking' attack, a malicious script that takes over a user's Facebook profile without their knowledge and propagates itself to their friends' accounts as well".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
