Scam of the Week: Beware of Free Gift Card Phishing Scams

The bad guys know you like free stuff, but this time it’s going to cost you! They lure you to a fake website for a “free” gift card in exchange for seemingly harmless information. Once on the site, you are asked a series of questions. If you make it through all of the questions, you’ll earn a unique code to redeem a gift card – this code and gift card are worthless!

The bad guys are tricking you into offering up your personal information. Don’t be the victim!

Never share your sensitive data and always check if an offer is legitimate by contacting the company making the offer. Remember, there’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Remember, think before you click.
