Gift card scams?

Have you ever heard of giftrocket.com or giftly.com?

They came up when I Googled my business name today, and they seem to be offering gift cards to use with my business.

Except I had NEVER heard of them until now, and wouldn't honor any gift card from them or anyone else, because I had nothing do with it.

A friend suggests they must be like Pay Pal, but I'm not so sure.

Anyone heard of them? Sounds like a scam to me.

I checked out giftrocket and it is nothing more than transferring money from the person who buys the gift, to the person who receives the gift. The person who receives the gift still pays you in cash, credit, etc

It is a more complicated way of giving someone a christmas card with 25 dollars inside and the Xmas card says "Please spend at Quik Twip"
obviously, they are free to spend it whereever.

They probably got your name from Yelp
