Around the holiday season there is a spike in online scams. Attached is an infographic with some advice on how to spot red flags of scams.

Feel free to post any additional advice to help fellow villagers.

Good points. Thank you!

I am still receiving several scam telephone calls a day on my land lines, some of which are from area codes I have never seen before or used, as well as several familiar area codes. The Chinese scammers still leave voice mails, ironically on both my land lines which are in two different states. They have my "numbers" I guess...
