Wegmans is alerting consumers to a scam that they say involves a fraudulent Facebook post using the company’s name.

The supermarket chain says the post shows the image of the Wegmans logo with a false claim that the company is giving away an $80 voucher for use in its stores. The company says the giveaway is neither affiliated with nor supported by Wegmans.  

Jo Natale, vice president of media relations, said, “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.”
