A new fake coupon making the rounds offering an amazing deal at Publix can be filed in the 'too good to be true' file.

The Lakeland, Florida-based grocery chain with a very devoted following is letting customers know that an online coupon offering $75 off an $80 purchase is a fake.

Publix took to social media on Wednesday to spread the word about the fake coupon, which was posted on a misleading website with an address that seems like it could be from the company's real site.

In a message on their Facebook page, they write:

"There is a fraudulent Publix coupon circulating on social media that states “$75 off your purchase of $80 or more". This is not supported by Publix and this coupon is not valid at any of our locations. We recommend not participating in the promotion or providing your personal information. Thank you for your patience as we investigate this situation."
