Also, I just noticed that whoever came up with that "coupon" is a poor speller..............they spelled coupon "COUPOUN"   That would be a dead giveaway to someone who is paying close attention. 

 Probably an "inside job" from a disgruntled Kroger employee??   (I know many of us employees are poor spellers.  Especially the managers who post memos / notices next to the timeclock!

Yo, hahahaha...

I don't know if what I encountered today would be considered the same type of coupons that the article is talking about, but I think I had a customer come through my Uscan with one of those fake Kroger coupons.

It was a coupon that was emailed to them, and it was apparently for $20 off their next shopping order. It had the Kroger logo on it and everything. They displayed it on their phone and were expecting me to scan it. I had to tell them the unfortunate news that Kroger doesn't accept those kinds of digital coupons, and that they had to be on paper.

They didn't believe me so I had to get a co-manager down to explain it to them. Co-manager asked them where they got it and they replied that it was emailed to them, so the co-manager explained that Kroger doesn't email coupons (something I didn't know). So apparently that coupon was a pure scam/fake.

I don't get it, though. What does the scammer gain from sending innocent customers fake coupons that won't even scan on our registers?

People are stupid. Why would a company give away 250 dollars worth of free stuff to people who can't even spell coupon.

Especially the managers who post memos / notices next to the timeclock!

Or (even district managers) who attempt to compose emails.

Welcome to dealing with the general public.  You'll be kissing a*ss and saying sorry a lot without realizing it.  You'll also be dealing with a lot of stupidity and people who are being as*s holes about being technology insufficient.
