Nasty Scam Experts Are Setting Traps for You
As Christmas shoppers get a little frantic in these last days before the Big Day, the thieves are increasing their already tricky methods to get your money, and in worse cases, your identity.
Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen warned against the scam experts with some common sense tips:
We also heard from the Better Business Bureau. They have a Scam Tracker online, where people can follow fraud reports and submit their own problem. The Bureau also said simply Google search a company's name. You're learn about the company and maybe even see some customer reviews. But, overall, if a deal seems too good to be true...it probably is.
If you have experienced a scam call the Montana Department of Justice's Office of Consumer Protection at 406-444-4500 or 800 free at 900 481-6896. They're also online at the Department of Justice website.
Be cautious, even if you're desperate to get your shopping done.
