Apparently one of the newer scams on line is counterfeit coupons. I wonder why anyone would go to the trouble to make up and post a counterfeit coupon.

Imagine finding a coupon for a product, going to the trouble to find the item and drag it off to the checkout. When you learn it is fake, odds are you will be angry with the store, the product and the manufacturer. Most of these counterfeit coupons are for major manufacturers, which surely would stop the fraud if they could.

But it these fake coupons are coming from Nigeria...
the manufacturer probably would be helpless to stop it, AND,
'click to download', sure would be a good way to put malware into your computer!

Here is a site which lists many of the counterfeit coupons:

I'm not going to look at any of the PDFs, but the first red flag is the amount of the coupon. Most of them are way too much money off. I'd be disbelieving of that immediately!RollEyes
