Holiday Season Perfect for Scams

With the amount of shopping and purchasing Americans do from Black Friday through December, the holiday season makes for a natural time for a variety of scams to surface. The Better Business Bureau warns of a number of scams that can have a bigger impact during the consumer-driven winter months. Internet scams in the form of fake websites offering deals on merchandise are popular, said Reanna Smith-Hamblin, the vice president of communications for the Louisville-area Better Business Bureau.
