Scammers never sleep.
The latest scam making the rounds involves gift cards. People in the Charlotte area have been receiving postcards offering $100 gift cards from Wal-mart or Target. To receive the gift cards, people are encouraged to pay a shipping fee by providing their credit card info. Of course, the scammer takes your credit card info and has a field day.
If you receive something in the mail that sounds like this scam, DON’T GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION. Call 1-877-5-NO-SCAM to report the solicitation.
