Wegmans Alerts Consumers to Facebook Scam

Rochester, NY, June 30, 2016 -

Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is alerting consumers to a scam that involves a fraudulent Facebook post bearing the company’s name. The company became aware of the scam during the night on June 29 when a customer questioned the validity of the post.

The Facebook post shows the image of the Wegmans logo with a false claim that the company is celebrating its 100th anniversary by giving away a free $100 voucher for use in its stores. This giveaway is neither affiliated with nor supported by Wegmans.

Valerie Fox, Wegmans media relations coordinator, said, “We’re actively working to have this fraudulent post removed from Facebook. We urge consumers not to click it, share it, or provide any personal information.”

Wegmans Food Markets, Inc. is an 89-store supermarket chain with stores in New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Maryland, and Massachusetts. The family-owned company, recognized as an industry leader and innovator, is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2016.
