I received this from a friend and wanted to share with everyone. We ALL need to be careful around the holidays.
The crooks have found a way to rob you of your gift card balance.
If you buy Gift Cards from a display rack that has various store cards you may become a victim of theft. Crooks are now jotting down the card numbers in the store and then wait a few days and call to see how much of a balance "THEY" have on the card. Once they find the card is "activated", they go online and the shopping begins.
You may want to purchase your card from a customer service person, where they do not have the Gift Cards viewable to the public.
Let's all share this with family and friends!
