Shopping Scams During the Holiday Season

As we all get ready to purchase gifts  for the holiday season I would like to remind everyone that there are plenty of scammers just waiting to take advantage of you. A couple of things to remember:

  • Never input your personal information including credit card number into an unsecured webpage.
  • If deal sounds to good to be true it probably is…research the company you are buying from.
  • There are many charity scams on the internet…again research the company before giving money.
  • Use only one card (we use one with a low line of credit) for internet purchases and monitor it closely (daily) for suspicious activity.

There is a good post over at Time Tech if you would like some more information. Link
