Police warn of Lowe's coupon scam on Facebook
LYNCHBURG, Va. (WSET) - Lynchburg Police are warning of a scam making the rounds on Facebook.
Police say the scam involves a $50 coupon to Lowe's for Mother's Day.
Officials say the scam started back in 2015, with the link to a fraudulent website adorned with the Lowe's logo.
The scam requires victims to pass it to their friends, officials say.
The Better Business Bureau gave these tips:
Watch out for a reward that’s too good to be true. If the survey is real, you may be entered in a drawing to win a gift card or receive a small discount off your next purchase. Few businesses can afford to give away $50 gift cards for completing a few questions.
If you've been a victim of this scam, report it to local law enforcement.
