Fake gift cards
The FBI says gift card scams are on the rise this holiday season. You might get a call or email saying you won a gift card. It could be a $50 gift card for Target or Walmart, for example.
If you receive an email, look for signs of a scam. Does it contain any links, attachments or requests for personal information? Does it ask for your credit card info? You can bet it's a scam. Delete it right away.
