CINCINNATI (WCMH) — The Kroger Company says a post about a free $50 check circulating social media is false.

The post in question has an image of a check from Kroger and a link to a survey website. Anyone who takes the survey is then encouraged to share it on Facebook and type “thanks for my check” as a comment.

“We don’t recommend engaging with ANY offers or websites hosted by ‘the-kroger,’ or providing them with any personal information,” the company wrote on Facebook.

The company says it is actively working with the social media site and domain service providers to address the concern. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
