You may have seen the ads on Facebook: big retailers offering $50 coupons to celebrate Mother's Day. These deals are too good to be true.
The scam on Facebook started with a fake coupon that looks like Lowe's is just giving away $50 to everyone.
NBC 5 Responds learned these fake coupons included Home Depot, Target and IKEA.
To get the coupon, users click on the ad in Facebook. It then takes you to a page that looks just like you're on the retailers' site. It asks you to take a quick survey to redeem the coupon.
We've learned that it's a phishing scam intended to steal your personal information and there is no coupon at the end of this so called deal.
Lowe's tells NBC 5 Responds they are aware of the scam and want customers to only trust online coupons on their actual website.
