I cashier at walmart and have known that these are fake for sometime and have not taken them. Our cash office accountant put images of 3 or 4 fraud coupons out last week and since then we have had at least 10 of these a day that people try to get through. Before that I think we only saw them like once a month.

As a well known coupon user at my local Walmart it totally freaked me out at how close I was to using one of these fakes! My husband called & said they were available in the break room at his job. When he told me the value I couldn’t believe it. I immediately googled them to see if they were still available for print only to find out they are fakes! Thank goodness I didn’t ruin my rep by using one, but it truly would have been an honest mistake. I called him back & told him to destroy all of them & warn his co-workers not to use them. There was also one for $6.00 off of toilet paper.

My husband just brought home the 6.00 toilet paper coupon and it was for cottonelle. I’ve found this one on an ebay auction & haven’t seen anything come up about it being fake, but what he brought home were even photo copies. He said he thought several people had used them without any problem, but I explained the consequences of using them & that whoever printed them could be in some trouble. We are sticking to our inserts from the newspaper. I Shredded all of them!!

My girlfriend text me an told me about this coupon and said she had several. So I drove 40 minutes to her house. I went to four different Walmarts and Krogers before I decided to google to see if they were real. I had never heard of fake coupons so it never crossed my mind that they were fake. I feel so stupid!!!! Not to mention angry I would never pass off something fake to a friend. WTH is wrong with people be grateful for the coupons we can get!!!!
Whores!!

I’m a cashier at Walgreens and a customer came today with a $5.00 and 2 coupons for $9.00 off of Tide and Cottonelle toilet tissue. Right away you can tell the difference between this coupons and the real deal. If it looks to good to be true it probably it is!

So I am a Cashier at CVS and I took these coupons last Saturday then couple days ago the big bosses sent us a paper saying these were fake. && I told my manager that I would do some research to make sure it’s fake and yes it’s fake and it won’t even scan like a normal coupon. People are just really low these days and bored with there lives.
