LOOK OUT…GIFT CARD SCAM!!
A Simple Scam
Be on the look out!
The process of stealing the money off gift cards can vary. With the simplest method, a hacker takes cards off the rack, writes down the gift cards' numbers, and scratches off the strip on the back of the cards to get the security codes.
Once he has that information, he puts replacement strips—easily available online—over the codes and exits the store.
Later, after you buy one of those cards and load money onto it, the hacker gets an alert that tells him that the funds have been loaded onto the card.
BE SAFE...GET THE CARDS THAT ARE IN THE BACK OF THE RACK!!!!
