No, Hy-Vee is Not Giving You Free Food
We all like a great deal, especially when it's as easy as the click of a button or a mouse. Several of these deals have appeared recently on social media, and one company is taking a stand.
Hy-Vee is the latest target of a Facebook scam offering $150 in groceries for your birthday. Sounds like an amazing deal, right? Well, as they say, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
The company warns that this latest offer, being circulated under their name, is not legitimate. While they work to halt it, they also encourage you not to share these posts on social media if you come across them.
So how do you know if an offer is legit? Look for spelling and grammatical errors as an obvious sign of a scam. Also, be aware of the source and only open offers from the official website or social media page of the company in question. You might also consider contacting the company in question to see if the ad is valid.
If you believe you have already clicked on an ad like this, make sure you scan your computer for viruses. You might also consider changing your passwords.
