Scammers love to target unsuspecting people into falling victim to their crime - often using popular stores and companies as bait.  It appears that the Aldi store is the most-recent example.

Officials with Aldi are warning consumers not to fall for the most-recent scam on social media sites like Facebook.  The scam promises high-value coupons or gift cards in exchange for personal data.  It's not a real offer.

Aldi issued the following statement on their own Facebook site:

Hi, ALDI USA fans, we understand the confusion that some customers experienced with the recent digital coupon scams affecting ALDI and other retailers. We’d like you to know that ALDI does not issue electronic coupons or gift cards. These offers were not authorized or distributed by ALDI and will not be honored at our stores. We sincerely regret any inconvenience this situation may cause. If you would like more information, please feel free to contact ALDI customer service.

As is often the case, if the offer seems too good to be true it usually is.  Don't allow yourself to become a victim.
