As you likely already know, Chick-Fil-A is giving away a free breakfast to help kick off the chain’s breakfast menu. (I covered it in a recent “Freebie Friday” post on Suddenly Frugal. ) To participate you need to make a reservation this week.
According to Peter Mucha at the Philadelphia Inquirer, a scam artist has set up shop, posing as a Chick-Fil-A rep, to capture people’s personal information. This scammer also has a website but it’s a total fraud. (I won’t even post a link.)
Bottom line: if you want to participate in Chick-Fil-A’s freebie, the real site has an online reservation form. The fake site offers a coupon and asks for all kinds of personal information, including your cell phone number.
Hey, everybody loves something for free but not at the risk of divulging personal information.
