A social distancing coupon for Starbucks is fake. People are receiving Emails asking them to click on a link so they and their friends can get $100 gift cards to Starbucks. The Email contains the Starbucks logo along with the wording, "To Apologize for Closing Stores. Get a $100 Starbucks Card On Us, During these uncertain times we appreciate your understanding. To sweeten things up get a $100 gift card from us."
State Attorney General Keith Ellison is urging Minnesotans to be careful of scams that exploit people's concerns about coronavirus. He recommends not clicking on links from unknown sources and getting updated information directly from the source like the Minnesota Department of Health. Anyone with concerns should call the A-G's office.
