From emails to phone calls to letters, consumers across the country should be aware that scammers often take advantage of holidays to catch people off-guard. Better Business Bureau serving Alaska, Oregon and Western Washington reminds the public to watch out for lepre-cons this St. Patrick’s Day.
Irish immigrants first brought the observance of St. Patrick’s Day to the United States in 1737 and the tale suggests that there are pots-o-gold at the end of rainbows. But don’t be so quick to assume that every rainbow will yield a prize; reports indicate that there has been a recent increase in phishing attempts that claim to award recipients with a St. Patty’s day treasure.
Stay safe this holiday by staying green:
Greet unsolicited emails with caution and never open links or attachments.
