ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WKBW) — If you see an $80 Wegmans coupon on social media, don't click on it.

Wegmans Food Markets says the coupon is a scam involving a fraudulent Facebook post.

“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,” Vice President of Media Relations Jo Natale told 7 Eyewitness News.

The Facebook post shows the Wegmans logo claiming that the company is giving away an $80 voucher.

The voucher and giveaway is not associated with the Rochester-based grocery chain.

A similar scam happened in Tampa, Florida, with a fraudulent $80 Publix coupon.

Publix warned its shoppers not to click on it or share personal information.
