Many of the coupons featured on TLC's show were actually counterfeit.

There's a blogger local to me that has been following the saga of fake coupons, and illustrates why it is hardly ever a good idea to purchase coupons off the internet, especially not "free" or "BOGO" coupons:

However, there have been some instances when I have purchased high dollar coupons on ebay. When I do it, I am able to compare the purchased coupons to coupons I have already clipped from the weekly inserts, so that I know that they are not counterfeit.
