TULSA - The Better Business Bureau issues a warning about fake Groupon deals.
It provides a sample of what the emails look like.
At first glance it's nearly impossible to tell the coupons aren't really from Groupon.
But see the spelling mistake in the subject line? "Dicount" rather than discount.
The BBB says bad spelling or grammar can often tip you off that an email or letter is a scam.
Officials say the attachment contains a virus.
Never open an attachment or follow a link unless you are positive who sent the email.
Just in case, keep your virus software up to date and regularly run a scan on your computer.
