Not everything you read on the internet is true and if something seems too good to be true it probably is are sayings we hear often. The problem is knowing how to find out if something is true or too good to be true. There’s a promotion going wild on social media right now that is causing some confusion.

Is Texas Roadhouse Really Giving Free Meals to People in Idaho?

You can find the deal on Facebook if you go to the Outback Steakhouse Fans page. They claim that Outback Steakhouse will give you 2 free meals, out of the goodness of their hearts, if you comment on the post and then give them some personal information.

If you’ve taken any sort of online safety training, you probably already see a few red flags with that deal.

The fact that the deal isn’t coming from the official Texas Roadhouse page should cause some concern. The second red flag is that the free meal requires you to give them personal info. Another red flag that you’ll only see if you go to their page (you shouldn’t which is why we aren’t posting the link) is that the page was recently made and only has the one post about the free meals.
