Holiday Season Also The Season For Online Scammers

The season for giving is also the season for stealing by online scammers. They may use the names of prominent companies or organizations to grab attention.

Busy, high-spending times are precisely the time for crooks.

Some of the top holiday scams include bogus websites offering fantastic bargain prices. Don’t trust a site or name you don’t know. In crowds at the mall watch for pickpockets. Keep wallets in a closed purse or in a pocket with a hand over it. Bogus charity collectors — simply do research. And emails promising non-existent seasonal jobs that ask to pay a fee.
