The holidays are here and many Floridians are shopping for that perfect gift. Others will wait till the last minute. But no matter when you plan to shop, it is important to do your research and guard against scams.
That is why my office recently released the 2017 Holiday Consumer Protection Guide. The guide is full of information to help shoppers avoid identify theft and charity scams. There are also tips about protecting your sensitive financial information while shopping online.
The holidays are a time of joy and celebration. Do not let a scammer, or anyone, ruin your holiday season.
