The Better Business Bureau says, as we move into the holiday shopping season, online scams are a big concern.
The BBB reports more than all of 1/3 of cases reported to their scamtracker are online ripoffs and 4 of 5 people involved actually lose money.
How can you spot a scam?
“If all the deals are the same price . . . . that’s a red flag,” Stephanie Garland of the BBB says.
“If you can’t find an ‘About Us’ page that should be clearly written out, that’s a red flag. If you can’t find an address, that should be a red flag.”
Garland says if you need help…. you can go to BBB dot org or call 417-862-4222 from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
