The two websites you need to hang onto are:
The first one is, Lookstoogoodtobetrue.com. Their goal is to educate consumers for prevention of becoming a victim of Internet fraud. This site was developed and is maintained by a joint federal law enforcement and industry task force. Isn’t that comforting! It makes me feel better to know the right folks are looking out for us! Several menu selections on the Looks Too Good To Be True website include; Types of Fraud, Victims Stories, Teen Center and a Consumer Alert page. The Victims stories cover topics such as; discounted gift cards, charged double for an online order, buyer and professional shipper and many, many more. Be sure to take a look and save them to your favorites on your PC.
The second site is actually www.fbi.gov. To get right to the page dealing with internet scams go here. I feel like you know there is a plethora of information available on the FBI website. There are headings such as Common Fraud Scams, Senior Citizens and Investment related scams. Each of these topics has a number of subtopics.
Both of these websites have information for reporting if you believe you have been a victim of internet fraud. They also both offer a great deal of information to educate yourself as well as links for more information. Let’s enjoy the wonderful Holiday season by protecting ourselves against those who seek to rob us! I hope you have found this information helpful. I LOVE to shop online, especially this time of year. I want that to be a good experience for you and me!
