This can work in two ways, trough email, text message or social-media post, the gift-check scam is more popular during Christmas season where people are buying on this a lot. The scam goes like this; a message will appear from nowhere announcing you a winner of a popular retail gift card. You are then instructed to follow a link and when you click it you will be directed to a site that is a remarkable clone of the real thing. This site will ask for your personal information.

    Criminals took every chances, every opportunity and holidays mean a great opportunity to prey on potential victims. People in holiday season tend to be less guard, they will find ways to go and get great deals, sales and offs and they tend to be more giving to charities and all. This makes them vulnerable to every scam possible. So this must serve as a lesson for everyone, it is not because it is the season of loving and sharing that doesn’t mean you should stop guarding yourself.

    Very well written article and very true info as well but scams in general are
    stereotype they are all the same if you’d think about it. And if that is so avoiding
    them is as stereotype too. Same ways on how to avoid same scams. Only
    those who are naive can be fooled by scams these days. These scams are so
    mainstream, they are too obvious now. You just have to use your common
    sense!
