Valentines Day Scams To Watch For

Posted: Updated:

Welcome back and thanks for sticking with us Valentines Day is near and we all know love will be in there air this week, But unfortunately the Better Business Bureau thinks some not so lovely scams might be coming along with the holiday.

With the day of love just around the corner, scam artists are looking to take advantage. To keep you safe the Better Business Bureau is warning love birds of a few different rip-offs like social media scams offering free giveaways.

"The big frequent scams that we do see is things like sweepstakes or groupons or things like that. So it is a matter of if somebody says you know, hey for Valentines Day get this offer, but you have to pay us $250 to get this offer generally that isn't legitimate." said Christian King from Better Business Bureau.

Instant messaging scams where consumers receive messages inviting them to chat online and catfishing are also things to be watch out for. Those looking to make purchases on smart phone app's should also be on the look out and only make purchases from trusted sites.
