ROCHESTER, New York (WTVR) -- If you see a post on Facebook advertising a $200 Wegmans giveaway, don't click, it's a scam. Wegmans alerted customers about the fraudulent post Monday.

"The company became aware of the scam earlier today when an employee questioned the validity of the post," Jo Natale, Wegmans vice president of media relations, said.
