Backyard gardeners advised to beware of “seed scams”

In the world of scamming, nothing is off-limits.

This week the Better Business Bureau is reporting that people buying seeds and plants for their spring gardens are now on the rip-off list.

“BBB has had reports, unfortunately, of scammers creating different kinds of fake web sites and sometimes they’ll create something that’s very popular,” says Stephanie Garland, Regional Director of the Better Business Bureau.

“Look and make sure it’s a real company that you’ll actually receive your seeds from,” she advises.

She says the best bet is to deal with reputable dealers in person instead of online if you’re in any way unsure.
