The Better Business Bureau wants to warn you about some scams that are common during this time of year.
Lottery/Check scams have been around for decades, but many still fall for the ruse. So if you receive a check, proceed with caution because it is probably a trick. Cyber fraud could be an online application, sale of merchandise or Social media ploy. The FBI/CIA/IRS did not find a virus on your computer. Don't be fooled. Finally, Medicare/Medicaid/Social Security will not call you to verify anything.
