Plus, by signing up, you’ve handed over your personal details and possibly your credit card information to a dishonest stranger. You might also come across coupons that off er deals in exchange for sharing a link on social media. Don’t do it!

Instead, you’ve given your personal details to scammers. How to avoid coupon scams • Don’t fall for deals that are too good to be true. Be skeptical. If a coupon is valued near or above the retail price of an item, consider it a red fl ag. • Check the source of the coupon. If the coupon doesn’t come from a recognized coupon distributor, the manufacRobert S. Catinazzo Sr turer or a specifi c store, be wary. If you aren’t sure about a coupon, visit the company’s website directly to look for the coupon on their offi cial site or contact their customer service line to inquire. • Think before you click on links in emails. If you receive a coupon via email, hover your mouse over the link without clicking on it to see where it will take you. If the URL looks like a random assortment of letters and numbers, or if it is a shortened link that doesn’t reveal where it’s taking you, don’t click it. To avoid downloading malware onto your computer, only visit offi cial websites. • Read coupons carefully. If a coupon doesn’t have an expiration date, if it looks photocopied or if it contains spelling and grammar errors, you’re probably dealing with a fake. • Don’t trade personal information for perks. A real business will not ask for your perOBITUARIES James “Jamie” P. Mantia II Rosa (Mauriello) DeNapoli sonal information, such as your credit card number or bank account information, in exchange for a coupon or to enter a giveaway. Promotional off ers that ask for personal information are usually scams. You shouldn’t have to pay to receive a coupon either. • Do a search for coupon scams.
