WARNING from COSTCO CANADA: FAKE $250 CASH CARD PROMOTION!

Hey everyone
Wasn't sure where to the post this...
They ask anyone who has entered this 'FAKE' contest to contact them

From the Costco Canada Facebook page:
''A note of caution regarding an alleged Cash Card promotion that is being shared within Facebook - the promotion is not sponsored, offered or approved by Costco Wholesale. The posting claimed to be giving away $250 Costco Cash Cards. We are looking into resolving this issue with Facebook and reaching those involved to have it removed. Please share with anyone who might have seen this promotion''

I found it depressing to see how many in my friendface community fell for this. Some of them with Masters and PhD degrees.
I thought the same thing when 2 people sent it to me through facebook.
