Officials are warning about a new widespread scam that’s found on Facebook.

It claims to be a free $50 dollar Mother’s Day coupon for Lowe’s home improvement stores. Once you click on the coupon, you’re taken to a fake Lowe’s website and asked to fill out a short survey that’s designed to steal your personal information, according to ABC 57.

This isn’t the first time the company has been a victim of a scam. A similar fraudulent offer for a $100 coupon to Lowe’s started circulating on Facebook back in 2015. Similar Facebook scams have recently involved Home Depot, Costco, Amazon and Kroger.

The Better Business Bureau reminds you to not believe everything that you see, because scammers have no problem stealing the colors and logos of legitmate websites. If someone wants your personal information, be sure there is a link to their privacy policy.
