♫ “On the 12th Day of Christmas my true love gave to me…SCAMS!?” ♫

Well, not really.  I’m sure the gift they’ve picked will be perfect, but if they weren’t careful during their holiday shopping, they may fall victim to holiday scams themselves.  Unfortunately, just as we start prepping for the holidays, so do the scammers!  While we’re busy buying online, they’re busy creating look-alike websites.  While we’re anxiously awaiting that last package guaranteed to be delivered by noon on Dec. 24th, they’re creating phony shipping notifications promising an update.  While we’re feeling generous and ready to donate the money we’ve collected as a family all year, they’re busy creating the perfect phony charity guaranteed to line their own pockets!

They are sneaky and will do just about anything to defraud their unsuspecting victims.  Don’t be one of them.  Take a minute to follow the link and read the “12 Scams of Christmas” document released by the BBB outlining the 12 most commonly seen holiday scams.
