Verify: Is a coupon for free Dunkin' Donuts legitimate?

Is a Dunkin' Donuts coupon for free donuts real? Our Verify team takes a closer look.

HOUSTON - A coupon for a free dozen donuts is circulating on Facebook, and viewers have asked KHOU 11 News if it is legitimate. Our Verify took a closer look at the offer.

We found the sweet deal could actually do a number on your computer.

Our researchers reached out to Justin Drake, the senior manager of public relations for Dunkin’ Donuts, who told us this is not a legitimate offer.

We also found if you click on the coupon, you are directed to a survey and asked to share it on Facebook. But if you have virus protection. It will warn you the page is loaded with malware, so there is a good chance you could get a computer virus.

The bottom line: We can confirm this offer is no good.
