Be On The Lookout For These Mother’s Day Scams

I wanted to share some takeaways from a recent article I read in the NY Post. A fraud protection firm examined data from the last couple of years, and found the top fake and stolen things people may accidentally buy their mom for Mother’s Day.

1.  Luxury watches and jewelry. For some reason Kate Spade is a popular brand for bogus websites.  They buy the watches with stolen credit cards and sell them at a discount.

2.  Vacation packages. Trips to Disneyland and Disney World in particular.  Be cautious if they want you to pay with Bitcoins, iTunes gift cards, or PayPal.

3.  Clothing. Be on the lookout for websites that sell shoes, high-end fashion stuff, and expensive things. If the deal looks to good to be true, it probably is!
