  • Facebook posts promoting Christmas food giveaway are a hoax

    Supermarket chain Kroger has warned that Facebook posts promoting a free food giveaway by the company are fake and did not originate from its verified social media account.

    The Cincinnati-based chain said it was aware of the fraudulent Facebook posts being made by an account labeled which includes a logo and pictures of real Kroger stores, while its real Facebook account is simply Kroger, according to USA Today.

    "We are aware of this fraudulent page and are working to address this matter," Kroger responded to social media users wondering about the free food promotional. "We recommend not engaging with the posting, and we appreciate your patronage."

    As for advertising on Facebook in general, I already have a very sad experience with it. Because I was banned for the most common advertisement of my online store there in a related group. The system is weird, but tough. I tried to get through to the website support, but no, my account with all the customers and information was immediately placed in a permanent ban. I was very upset by this situation, because I would have had to start from scratch. But then I got lucky, I found experts with and they really helped me legally get out from under the Facebook ban and now my page is back up and running like before. I'm really thrilled and it was only thanks to their help that I was able to get everything up and running again. They also gave me advice on how to avoid being blocked in the future, special thanks for that.
