Shipping Scams Used During The Holidays


An official with the state’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection cautions those waiting on shipping for Christmas gifts not to inadvertently being taken in by a scammer. Scammers can get sneaky and use phony shipment emails that can look like legitimate ones. The email may say your package is waiting but needs to be confirmed. But by clicking on a link you could be loading malicious software or malware on your computer. Michelle Reinen is the Director of the Bureau of Consumer Protection. She advises tracking your package through the information the retailer that you purchased the package from gave you. They usually provide a confirmation email that includes that information so you can track your package. Reinen says remember if you give your personal information out to a scammer they will use it against you.
