Scams are recently on the rise. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), anyone who demands payments by gift card is always a scammer. Gift cards should never be used as payments to someone asking for money. Here is an FTC web link with more information on gift card scams.
Another fraud scheme that’s on the rise is the “imposter” scam. For more information on various imposter scams, please once again visit this web link on the FTC website.
