PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Most people have seen posts about a gift exchange going around on Facebook, but what they don’t realize is that it is actually an illegal scam.

The post asks you to send a gift as part of the Secret Sister Gift Exchange, saying in return you can receive up to 36 gifts.

However, the math just doesn’t add up.

The postal service also reminds people that it is illegal to ask for items and promise a return.
