My job involves me helping out with online promotions and loyalty programs. Lately we noticed an influx of suspicious looking receipts for one of our campaigns. After doing some digging we find that there’s a Facebook group dedicated to exploiting coupon codes and/or faking receipts for loyalty programs! We took plenty of screenshots of the users bragging about how they “beat the system” by using these fake coupons both in store and online, one even told about how she got an employee written up by corporate for accusing her of using fake coupons, even though she was. Unfortunately for the valid users this likely means that we’ll be ending that campaign 6 months early, all because of a group of selfish, greedy people.
