Better Business Bureau of Central Virginia offers helps for holiday shopping
The unofficial start to the holiday season kicks off the day after Thanksgiving with Black Friday, followed by Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday. The up tempo start for thieves and scammers, not coincidentally, begins at the same time. Your BBB serving Central Virginia is on the front lines fighting to help ensure the holidays are scam-free.
“There’s an element that cares nothing for holidays other than what they can steal from people,” said Barry N. Moore, President & CEO of the BBB serving Central Virginia. “Consumers must be on a heightened sense of scam awareness during the holidays or they will get ripped off by skilled thieves. Go to BBB.org to help stay up on the latest scams and frauds,” added Moore.
“Shop Safe. Shop Smart.”
