If you’ve been on Facebook, you’ve probably seen an H-E-B coupon being shared.

The link claims H-E-B. is giving out 1,000 vouchers for $200 to celebrate its birthday, and is the focus of today’s Fact Check.

So, fact check: Is this voucher offer real?

Our Fact Check team looked into that and we found this is fiction.

Kelly Trevino with the Better Business Bureau says the voucher is not a legitimate coupon.

"One way to find out if a coupon is legitimate or not is to go to H.E.B.’s website and make sure they are offering the coupon but they are not." Trevino said.

Trevino says if you click on the voucher’s link, it leads to a website that will ask for your personal information.

There’s another concern. Suspicious links like this one could install malware on your digital device, and swipe your information.
