It's easy to brush off Facebook scams as nothing but a minor annoyance. After all, you hear about Facebook scams every day.

Some are silly, like a recent "Christmas bonus" scam that probably didn't fool too many people. Facebook is giving away money for Christmas? Unlikely.

Still, you can't just dismiss Facebook scams. Some of them are costly, like a woman who lost $44,550 to help her would-be fiance return to America.

Now, there's word of a Facebook scam involving a tempting coupon, to save money at a major grocery store. It sounds like a harmless scam, but it isn't. In fact, it's scary because you could end up sharing your personal information with cybercriminals.

You may see a 40% off Kroger coupon on Facebook. It's easy to get fooled. (See the original coupon on the next page.)
