The scam will try to trick you into sharing it by claiming that you can receive your free carton of cigarettes at the website: "www.getacoupon.site". But, the website is fraudulent, is not giving away free cases of Winfield cigarettes, and is NOT associated with Winfield. The post and website are only a scam to get you to do surveys that collect personal information, and to trick you into spreading the same scam to other Facebook users by asking you to comment on, "like" or share the same Facebook post and website.
