How To Avoid Common Holiday Scams

Your holiday season can quickly take a distinctly unfestive turn if you become a victim of fraud. Many scammers use holiday activities like shopping and traveling to make an unscrupulous buck. Fortunately, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) has some advice for avoiding common holiday scams:

Be Wary of Websites
You need to be suspicious of websites offering popular items at prices that are too good to be true. Look for the BBB seal when shopping online and click it to confirm authenticity. When purchasing items on auction sites, research the seller extensively and listen to your gut if the deal doesn’t seem legit.

Check Out Charitable Donations
Holiday giving creates an opportunity for scammers to solicit donations to line their own pockets. Always research a charity before making a donation, and be wary of supposed organization representatives who try to pressure you or refuse to answer questions about the cause.

Travel Carefully
A scammer may call you in your hotel room late at night and ask for your credit card number for various legitimate-sounding purposes. Hotel professionals would never call you in the middle of the night, nor would they ask for sensitive information over the phone. If you get a request like this, go to the hotel lobby desk to find out if it’s for real.

Pay Close Attention to Delivery-Related Email
Common phishing emails around the holidays include e-cards and messages pretending to be from companies like UPS or FedEx with links to package tracking information. Don’t click on any links or open any attachments to emails coming from a questionable source (typos and grammatical mistakes are red flags). Also, make sure your computer has all current antivirus software and security patches installed.

If you need help keeping your computer secure, call SKT at 888.758.8976 and ask about our MySecurity Internet Security Suite at $4.95 per month.
It is an easy-to-use, comprehensive security solution that keeps out hackers, viruses, worms, fraudulent emails, and other threats. MySecurity uses award-winning firewall technology by Check Point, and includes antivirus, phishing & spam protection, website filtering, privacy protection, instant messaging security, and more. In addition, MySecurity automatically secures PCs connected to wireless networks – at home or on the road!
