Dollar General “$60 Coupon Giveaway” Facebook Scam

Outline:
Circulating Facebook post claims that you can click to get a $60 coupon from American variety store chain Dollar General.



Analysis:
The post is not associated with Dollar General in any way and those who participate will never receive the promised coupon.

The post is a Facebook scam designed to trick you into first spamming your friends with the same fake giveaway and then supplying your personal information on scam survey websites.
