Naperville and Lisle Townships Triad

The Scams of Christmas

  1. “Help Me Get Home for Christmas”  Scammers will try to take advantage of you over the holidays
  2. Travelers are easy targets for scammers.
  3. If you take packages to your car at the mall, move the car and park in another space.  Thieves will be watching you.
  4. Not everyone is honest about where you donate your money. Check out the charity’s legitimacy.
  5. Do not purchase gift cards from unattended racks. Scammers can activate the account leaving your recipient a worthless card.
  6. It is unlikely that delivery services will e-mail you that they are trying to deliver a package.  Assume that it has been sent by a scammer.
