The 12 scams of Christmas

By Rachel Garceau. CREATED Dec 9, 2013

Later this week, we start the 12 days of Christmas, but that also means it's the season for scams. Better Business Bureau's Dale Dixon joined Good Morning Idaho to alert us to the 12 scams of the holiday season.  Here's how it goes (we'll let you carry the tune!):

On the 12th day of Christmas, the scammer gave to me: 12 malware e-cards... 11 stranded grandkids... 10 counterfeit gifts... 9 pickpockets...8 stolen gift cards... 7 fake coupons... 6 santa scammers... 5 fake charities...4 bogus websites... 3 travel scams... 2 phony loves... and a totally fictitious puppy!

If you're looking for more information on any of the scams mentioned above, watch the video and then h ead to the BBB's website.  They've got all the information you need to help you protect your identity and your money.
