(WWJ) Costco is warning customers about a bogus coupon that's once again circulating online. 

In a Facebook post last night, the big box retailer wrote: 

"Despite several posts out there, Costco is NOT giving away $75 coupons. While we love our fans and our members, this offer is a SCAM, and in no way affiliated with Costco. Thanks to our fans for letting us know about this recurring hoax!"

The phony voucher (example seen above) looks fairly legit, complete with a bar code and detailed instructions for use. There are several variations of the phony coupon that have been making the rounds on Facebook and other social media.

Consumers should expect this to be just one of many scams they encounter, either online or by phone, in the coming weeks. Be smart, stay alert, and check out THIS RUNDOWN of scams that police in metro Detroit are warning about as we enter the holiday season.
