Kroger often gives Fuel Points for taking a customer service survey.  You'll frequently find these at the bottom of your grocery receipt.

But thousands of Kroger customers are now sharing a survey on Facebook, promising an unbelievable 5,000 Fuel Pointsif you answer the questions.

The survey, from a site called either, or, promises to award more points for the more questions you answer. And it asks you to share it with your Facebook friends.

But don't take it, or even share it.

What can happen if you shrae it

Kroger spokeswoman Patty Leeseman says this is a sharing scam (sometimes called a "like farming" scam), designed to gather personal information, and your personal contacts, for future marketing purposes.

The survey is not connected to or endorsed by Kroger.

Worse, you will not get any points.    

Kroger's legitimate customer service surveys are on cash register receipts, and offer just 50 points, not 5,000.

As always, don't waste your money.
