Yahoo has a great article out right now on the 12 scams of Christmas. Can’t you just here the song in your head?
“…On the first scam of Christmas my true love gave to me a stolen Nintendo Wii”
(feel free to add a line from day 2-12 in the comment section below.)
Here is the list of the scams that Yahoo talks about in the article: Fake holiday help. Fake charities. Fake check scams. Counterfeit merchandise. Fake vacation rentals. Nondelivery of stuff bought online. Email scams. Phishing scams. Watch for the “items-off-of-a-truck” scam. Limited quantities. Bait and switch. Layaway plans.
Although it was a great article they forgot THE ULTIMATE Christmas scam that millions and millions of people fall for every year, and it’s called the “stuff scam.” What is the stuff scam? Glad you asked. The stuff scam is when the media, and the culture we live in, convince us that the Christmas season is about stuff, and I fall for it every year! Remember, that Christmas is all about this FREE GIFT that we are offered, and that it all starts with the birth of the savior of the world! Hallelujah!
