“SECRET” AND ILLEGAL GIFTING SCAM
The ‘secret sisters’ gift exchange is popping up on Social Media. Invitees are told to send a $10 give to the next person on the list and invite 6 friends to join. THIS IS A SCAM!
CHIP CARD SCAM
Scammers are telling people that they must provide personal data or money to obtain a new card with the new EMV chip in it. This is not true. THIS IS A SCAM
FAKE SHIPPING NOTICES
Scammers send a fake-email (that looks VERY authentic) and claims a package was sent to you or is to be delivered to you. Again, this is just another way for these scammers to get your personal data. Delete without responding. THIS IS A SCAM.
FAKE E-COMMERCE WEBSITES
Fraudulent websites are TOO common. They look real. You always have to look at the actual URL (address) of the site to check. Remember that if it looks too good to be real, it probably is. THIS TOO IS A SCAM
We hope this helps keep you just a little bit safer this holiday season!
Be safe out there!
