Thanksgiving is next week and the Christmas holiday shopping season is underway. Many people are shopping online, which is convenient, but may also serve as a cover for scammers.
State Better Business Bureau Director Jessie Schmidt said the old saying “if a deal looks too good to be true, it probably is” still applies.
Schmidt said to be sure to look for fine details regarding online payment security.
More information on avoiding online shopping scams can be found online on the Better Business Bureau’s website.
