I just read this clip about fake internet coupons and thought I'd pass it along. It's just hard to know what sites that can be trusted these days. Clipped by Coupons

DH and I were shopping in the Dollar General Store and the salesclerk told us about counterfeit coupons.

There's a second "urban legend debunker" where you can check, too: I tend to check both this one and Snopes.

For legit coupons, it is best to go to the site that manufactures the product. For example, go to the Kraft site to get Kraft mac and cheese coupons, etc.

Thought I should share this article with fellow internet coupon lovers as a simple 'beware' of internet coupon scams. Be careful where you get your coupons from. If one looks too good to be true, it probably is and not only have you wasted your time, but also the cost of print ink and paper.

I'd like to add that there's an internal link within this article (am sharing here) where you can view current coupon scams and it's updated fairly often. When you open the link just click on the orange button on the left side of the page that says, "New Counterfeit Coupons Identified".

You'll be amazed just how many there are and I am fairly certain there are oodles more out there that haven't been identified yet. :-(

Not to mention looking like a fool when you forward it to everyone in your address book when you send it to them, LOL! My daughter checks bogus stuff like that on Snopes; I need to start doing that. (07/06/2010)
