Don't Get Scrooged by a Holiday Scam

Wouldn't it be nice if criminals took a break for the holidays, leaving the rest of us to enjoy our celebrations without the worry of scams and fraud? Unfortunately, they don't slow down at this time of year, and if anything, scammers actually ramp up their activity to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers.

Luckily, you can preserve your holiday cheer and reduce your chances of becoming a victim by learning a few signs of some common scams. Remember, these scams can take on holiday-themed forms at this time of year but can still be a threat all year long.

Trump and the Military

President Donald Trump was in New York City earlier this week for the 100th annual Veterans Day Parade. He is the first sitting president to accept the honor, although it has been offered to every president since 1985. It is just one more demonstration on how much he respects and appreciates our men and women in uniform. This isn't the first time that he has been involved in the Veteran's Day Parade.
