Free KFC vouchers on Facebook not affiliated with company
Facebook posts circulating in Canada claim to advertise free vouchers for Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) food. This is false; the fast-food chain told AFP the pages making the offers are not affiliated with the international chicken brand, and that legitimate offers can only be found on the company's website or on its verified social media pages.
"To celebrate this year's 70th Anniversary with KFC, we will be sending everyone who shared and typing 'Done' on Tuesday to get a Voucher. Each voucher can be used at any KFC to get three FREE chicken buckets!" says a June 9, 2022 Facebook post that was shared more than 30,000 times before being deleted.
Some of the posts come from pages that were created in June 2022 or recently changed their names to "KFC Fans."
The posts ask users in the comments to maximize engagement by tagging friends and sharing the posts in other active groups.
Bethany Tillo, a KFC Canada spokeswoman, told AFP in an email that the offers do not come from the fast-food chain.
"KFC Canada is not affiliated with the Facebook page making this offer," she said. "Valid offers from KFC Canada can be found on our website KFC.ca and our official social media pages which can be linked directly from KFC.ca."
