(WBAY) – You’re scrolling through your Facebook feed when your eye catches a great offer: $75 off your purchase at Kohl’s!

It’s too good to be true.

A fake Kohl’s coupon is once again making the rounds on social media.

It promises you can get $75 off a purchase of $80 or more. This one says the offer is valid until “May 31-Tuesday 2016.”

The Facebook post instructs you to click a link and share it to Facebook in order to get the coupon.

However, this coupon was not posted by Kohl’s and will not be accepted by the store.

Here’s a trick to spotting a fake: take a look at the internet address on the coupon. This one says WWW.KOHLS.COM-AR.COM. That’s not the address to Kohl’s website.

You may think it’s harmless to share these coupons, but it really could open you and your family and friends up to the possibility of viruses or ransomware.

The website Brad’s Deals has a lot more on the danger of sharing fake coupons. Click here to learn more on spotting a fake.
