Gift Card Scams Are On The Rise As Christmas Approaches

With Christmas less than a week away, unfortunately there are folks taking advantage of individuals who have the spirit of giving this season. The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is spreading the word about gift card scams. Gift cards are a popular and convenient gift for all occasions. They’re also a tool that scammers use to steal money from people. Scammers have been targeting Yavapai County residents by asking them to pay a fake fine or probation bill with gift cards. They may also use a compromised email account to send emails requesting gift card purchases for friends, family, or co-workers. Authorities remind you that gift cards are for gifts, not for paying fines. YCSO will never ask anyone to make a payment with a gift card. To report a scam, contact the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office.
