Gift Card Scams

Gift card scams offer the promise of gift cards for websites or stores that don’t offer gift cards or only offer them through official channels. These scams can also promise more in gift card value than you pay for the gift card itself. 

With so many stores or websites being popular shopping destinations, it’s easy to see why criminals have taken to perpetrating them. 

Amazon gift card scams are among the most common, given the ubiquity of shopping on Amazon. 

 

Gift Card Scams

Walmart gift card scams are also prevalent, as most of the country shops at Walmart occasionally or frequently. 

Ebay gift card scams are another common form to watch out for.

There are many more gift card scams to be aware of. Any popular website or store that offers gift cards often attracts a scam or two, so it behooves the consumer to learn what they are…and how to see them coming.
