Coupon Fraud

I'm sure some of you wonder how I or anyone else can know if a coupon is fraudulent. Well for one, word of these Qs spread on the internet like wildfire. The reason being that this kind of illegal activity hurts the manufacturer along with us the coupon user. Remember coupons are a privilege and privileges can be taken away.

Second, there is the CIC (Coupon Information Center) which is a non-for-profit organization that is dedicated to fighting coupon fraud. On their site you can find a list of all known fraudulent coupons.

Why am I mentioning this? Unfortunately two fraudulent coupons for free items have been circulated as well as sold. These are the counterfeit coupons along with info:

Bounty - free multi pack
Charmin - free multi pack
