According to the Huffington Post, here are a few scams to be aware:
- Vacation scams. Feeding on our desire to get away and explore. Watch out for travel clubs. You know the drill, big discounts but you'll need to pay a big fee first.
- Home improvement and yard work. Never pay before the job is done.
- Summer jobs - Scammers will advertise for jobs on legitimate sites. So watch for jobs that ask you to pay a fee before you can work.
Always be suspicious of an offer that sounds to good to be true. If you come across a scam in our area contact the police and make a report. By reporting a scam, you could save somebody not only a lot of money, but their summer too.
