Stay Safe this Holiday Season
As more people choose to have their packages delivered, consumers have reported receiving text messages claiming to be from a major delivery company. These ask them to click on a link to “update delivery preferences.” That link, warns the Better Business Bureau, is a way for scammers to download malware or steal information.
Tips for avoiding delivery scams:
- Purchase shipping insurance
- Frequently track your packages
- Allow delivery notifications on your phone
- Never click on links in texts or emails; visit the carrier’s website
Another type of scam involves virtual holiday shopping events. According to the Better Business Bureau, scammers are creating fake or duplicate events with the intent of stealing your credit card information. Stay safe by researching vendors and the host, visiting the event’s website for event-related details, and keeping receipts.
