(NewsNation Now) — We’re all searching for that perfect gift for loved ones during the holidays. But links touting online coupons, free gift cards and even free trials can be a red flag, according to the Better Business Bureau.
To avoid becoming a victim, the BBB says:
- Check business ratings
- Scrutinize those reviews
- Search for contact information
- Keep records of what you ordered
- Pay by credit card.
The BBB said if you are skeptical of the link you come across online, try searching for that business on their website.
