St. Petersburg, Florida -- A scam is making its way through Facebook claiming to be a "$250 Publix gift card giveaway".

An ad on Facebook is asking users to share a post in order to get a free $250 Publix gift voucher. However, the official Publix Facebook page recently posted stating that the giveaway is unauthorized and not affiliated with Publix.

Publix is asking people not to participate in the promotion or provide personal information.
