Beware of the Gift Card Scam

Holiday Gift Card Scam

If you are planning on buying gift cards this holiday season, make sure that you are paying for what you get.

Scammers are now creating fake barcode stickers and putting them on the back of gift cards.

When the gift card is scanned in at checkout, you actually send money to the scammer instead of buying $50 to Best Buy or Starbucks (or whichever gift card you are buying).

Watch the video above to learn what you need to be aware of when making a gift card purchase so you can avoid getting scammed.
