Friend code from savings spot does not work, looks like scam

Novice II

I tried several codes posted today within 2 hours of posting. Most recent being 3FRN9NP which I used within 1 minute of being posted and only 1 person (myself) viewed by that time. However, each time I got the message - Code is not valid or has expired - during checkout. Customer representative required friends email for verification, but that of course is not available in the posts at Savings Spot board in visible community…looks like either the system has broken again for this promo or codes posted here are a scam…
