“This giveaway is not affiliated with or supported by the Kroger Co.,” the company said in a Facebook post. “We recommend not engaging with the site or providing personal information. Our team is actively working to address the issue.”

According to a report on hoax-slayer.com, the bogus offer is a attempt to get Facebook users to participate in surveys and enter personal information.

“In reality, users will never receive the promised gift card, no matter how many surveys they participate in,” the website explained.

On Tuesday morning the offer was still listed on at least one website found via a Google search, asking users to share it on their Facebook page.
