Beware of Fake Package Notices as Holidays Approach

shutterstock_phishing

As the holidays approach, it’s a common tactic for phishing scammers to send emails claiming to be an alert about an undelivered package. In a slightly different variation of this scam, an email may allege to provide order details regarding a package delivery or an invoice file. By clicking on the provided link or downloading the “invoice,” you’re actually uploading a virus that will phish for your financial and personal information.Curious Courier 1

BBB Serving Metro Atlanta, Athens & Northeast Georgia warn these scammers often impersonate well-known shipping vendors, such as USPSUPS and FedEx, or even steal the identities of popular retailers to appear more legitimate and trick unsuspecting consumers.

With the chaos of the holidays, scammers realize that people may be more likely to ignore the warning signs of a fake package notice, especially if they are getting a head start on holiday shopping and expecting an actual package delivery.

Your Better Business Bureau suggests the following tips if you receive an email package notice:

  • Watch out for poor spelling or grammatical errors. Fraudulent emails are often filled with typos and misspellings due to the fact that many of these scams originate from overseas, where the scammer isn’t as familiar with the English language.
  • Ignore calls for “immediate action.” It’s a common tactic for scammers to claim that they have made multiple attempts to contact you and if you don’t act immediately, it will be too late. Scammers try to convince their victims to react on an emotional basis by creating a false sense of urgency.
  • Don’t always believe what you see. Just because an email may display a well-known company’s logo or appear to come from a reputable source, it doesn’t always mean that it’s a legitimate notice. Fake email addresses usually have very slight variations from the real ones and it’s easy enough for a scammer to copy and paste a company’s logo into their message.
  • Don’t be fooled by cleverly labeled links and attachments. A good rule of thumb is to never click on any links or download files from unfamiliar email addresses. Remember that a hyperlink may not actually lead to where it’s claiming to go. By right clicking on it and selecting copy link address, you can paste the link in your computer notepad or somewhere that is not your browser search or address bar to see the link’s true identity.

shutterstock_phishingReceive a package delivery notice and don’t even remember placing an order? It’s likely not legitimate. If you are expecting a delivery and are concerned that there may be a real issue, contact the company directly using verifiable contact information, not information contained in the email in question.

How to Treat a Family Member with Dementia This Holiday Season

shutterstock_senior christmas copy

Whether it’s Mom, Dad, Grandma or Grandpa – or your spouse – the “holiday quarter” can present special challenges for families with a loved one suffering from dementia. 

shutterstock_senior christmas copy

“We have an expectation that loved ones should never change from the person we’ve perceived them to be for years, but everyone changes significantly over an extended period, especially those diagnosed with dementia,” says Kerry Mills, a sought-after expert in best care practices for people with dementia, which includes Alzheimer’s. November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. 

“Dementia encompasses a wide range of brain diseases, which means it’s not the fault of a Grandma if she has trouble remembering things or gets flustered. 

Empathy for what she’s experiencing on the level of the brain will help your relationship with her. Do not expect her to meet you halfway to your world; you have to enter her world.”

Spouses have a particularly difficult time coping with their partner’s dementia, Mills says. A spousal relationship is a team and is central to the identities of both people. So, while you’re paying special attention to a parent’s or grandparent’s condition, extend it to his or her spouse, she says. 

Families tend to have a hard time coping with a loved one’s dementia during holiday gatherings. Mills, coauthor with Jennifer A. Brush of “I Care, A Handbook for Care Partners of People with Dementia,” (engagingalzheimers.com), offers tips for how to interact with a loved one – say, Grandma – whose brain is deteriorating.

•  Do not get frustrated. “First, do no harm” – the excellent maxim taught to medical students, is also a great first principle for those interacting with Grandma, who may be experiencing a level of frustration and anxiety you cannot comprehend adequately. She simply doesn’t have access to certain details, but she is still a conscious and feeling person who has plenty to offer. If you get frustrated, she’ll pick up on it.

•  Dedicate someone to Grandma during the gathering. Of course, loving families will want to include Grandma in the group, but be careful not to overwhelm her with attention. Her brain, which has trouble processing some information, could use assistance – a liaison to help her process things. Grandpa could probably use a break; her son or daughter may be the best handler during a gathering.

•  Give Grandma purpose; give her a task in the kitchen. Keep Grandma, who may’ve been prolific in the kitchen in the past, engaged! Simple tasks, such as mashing potatoes or stirring gravy, may be best. Engage her in conversation about the food. If it’s Grandpa whose suffering dementia, include him in a group. Give him a cigar if the other men are going outside to smoke. Engage him in a conversation about football, which may allow him on his own terms to recall details from the past. 

•  Use visual imagery and do not ask yes-or-no questions. Again, asking someone with Alzheimer’s to remember a specific incident 23 years ago can be like asking someone confined to a wheelchair to run a 40-yard dash – it’s physically impossible. Don’t pigeonhole her. Direct Grandma in conversation; say things to her that may stimulate recollection, but don’t push a memory that may not be there. Pictures are often an excellent tool. 

•  Safety is your biggest priority. Whether during a holiday gathering or in general, Grandma may commit herself to activities she shouldn’t be doing, such as driving. 

“She’s been driving for decades, and then she develops a memory problem, which not only prevents her from remembering her condition, but also how to drive safely,” Mills says. “This major safety concern applies to any potentially dangerous aspect to life.” 

“Currently, there’s a stigma with the condition, but I’d like to change the baseline for how we regard dementia,” Mills says. “As with other medical conditions, Alzheimer’s should not be about waiting to die – patients often live 15 years or more after a diagnosis. It should be about living with it.”

Protect Yourself from Gift Card Fraud

shutterstock_holidayccfraud

shutterstock_holidayccfraudAs one of the easiest universal gifts, gift cards are always a popular choice for gift givers during the holiday season. While a gift card allows the freedom to let the recipient choose what they want, it also creates a bigger opportunity for fraudsters to take advantage of unsuspecting consumers.

Although often overlooked, gift card fraud can happen either when a gift card is purchased or redeemed. Some fraudsters can purchase gift cards with stolen credit card information, or steal the gift card number and PIN, but leave the actual card in the store. From there, thieves can resell these cards or use the funds at the designated store to buy resalable goods. Thieves can also try to return stolen merchandise for store credit which they can later resell.

Better Business Bureau Serving Metro Atlanta, Athens & Northeast Georgia shares a few ways to protect yourself (and your gift receiver) from fraud on your gift card:

  • Use trusted sources – While you may get a good deal on gift card resale sites, the risk may outweigh the reward. Not all of these sites guarantee the face value of the gift card, as retailers can cancel stolen gift cards or a criminal might resell a gift card they have already used. The best way to combat this is to buy directly from the store you want the gift card from.
  • Look for tampering – The safest gift cards to buy are those that are in a thick plastic casing. If the gift card you want to buy is not in this packaging, check the back of the card to make sure the PIN hasn’t been scratched off. Thieves will often enter the store and write down the credit card number and PIN to make purchases online. Another good safe option is to use digital gift cards, as they are resistant to physical tampering.
  • Register the card – If the retailer allows you to register the card, do so immediately upon purchasing it. That way, if it is ever lost or stolen, you can protect the balance.
  • Be cautious – If you get a gift card, try to spend it as soon as possible. While gift cards rarely have expiration dates, the longer you hold onto your gift card, the better chance that you will forget about it, lose it, or the company may go out of business.

Can I get a refund? BBB tips for smart holiday shopping

Postive experiences also generate stress
holiday shopping

Don’t get caught holding the bag when it comes to holiday gift shopping.

You’ve just packed up the Halloween decorations and now you’re being bombarded with advertising for Christmas! Seems that Thanksgiving gets less attention each year. And BBB Serving Metro Atlanta, Athens & Northeast Georgia knows that’s exactly what retailers want because the Christmas season is their busiest time of the year. Long before the traditional “Back Friday” and “Cyber Monday,”  consumers will see ads for lay-a-way and pre-holiday sales. We know you have a lot on your mind, trying to determine what gifts to buy, especially for those “hard to give” folks, but here’s some tips you need to know prior to doing any holiday shopping that can save you time and most importantly, your money!

Georgia Law:

Consumers should know that in the state of Georgia, companies are allowed to establish their own policies regarding refunds, exchanges and store credits. In many firms, no such policies exist. No company is required by law to allow a customer the right to return or exchange merchandise no matter when it was purchased. The only exceptions to this rule are items that are misrepresented or defective. The laws in all states require a store to make good in such cases.

Current regulations do not require a store to post policies or put the information on the receipt. Therefore, it is your responsibility to find out each store’s policies regarding refunds/exchanges/store credits before making a purchase. Remember, policies for refunds and exchanges are voluntarily adopted to provide better customer service and not because a store is required by law.

BBB offers the following tips to make your holiday shopping a little less stressful:

  1. Save the receipt! Even if the store does not have a return policy, this information may be needed for warranty repair or to verify payment.
  2. Find out each store’s policy regarding refunds/exchanges/store credits before making a purchase. Do not assume you have the right to return items just because it is not posted or no one has said otherwise.
  3. If refunds or exchanges are allowed, find out the following:
  • Is there a specific time period in which items may be returned?
  • Must the item(s) be in the original packaging?
  • Will there be a restocking fee if you change your mind?
  • Can you return the item to another location of the store (this is especially important if the gift recipient is out of state).
  • Will the store give money back or will you be required to make an exchange or receive a store credit?

Don’t get caught “holding the gift” after a purchase. Be a smart shopper. Know your rights and each store’s policies before making a purchase. Understand it is your responsibility to determine a store’s policies regarding refunds and your right to shop elsewhere if a particular store’s policies don’t fit your needs. Before doing business with any company, check out their report at bbb.org.

And, companies, please don’t be a Scrooge! Post your policies so your customers can clearly see them.   A happy customer is a “return” customer!

To find companies you can trust, please visit our BBB Accredited Business Directory.

Information from the Governor’s Office of Consumer Protection:

MYTH – A store has to give me a refund if I request one.

FACT:   Georgia does not have any law that requires a business to provide a refund or accept returns.   A business may set its own return policy and may offer consumers cash, in-store credit, exchanges or no adjustment at all.   Many stores also set time limits during which they accept returns.   While not required to post their policies, businesses must honor any posted refund or return policy.

Layaway Offers Good Holiday Shopping Alternative

Save money with layaway

Layaway May Be Your Answer For Christmas Shopping

Already doing your Christmas shopping?  You’re not alone.  But many of us don’t have the money to pay for all of our gifts now.  The alternative – layaway.

Early holiday shopping is a smart way to prepare for the season, and what better way to do that than using layaway plans. Layaway plans are a good idea, especially for customers who want to buy products without paying the full amount upfront and do not want to use a credit card. Many retail companies are now advertising layaway opportunities for their customers to help them plan for their holiday shopping.

Once considered a dated, old-fashioned method of payment, layaway services are back in a big way, with many businesses now shaking the dust off their layaway programs for today’s beleaguered consumers. Buying items on layaway is different from putting them on a credit card because the buyer isn’t charged interest on the purchase and can’t take the item home until it is paid off.

When purchasing items on layaway, the buyer must typically make a down payment of 10 to 20 percent and pay any service or plan fees for the store to hold the item for them. The customer then has typically 30 to 90 days to make periodic payments to pay off the balance. Once it is paid off, the customer can take the items home.

Layaway services can be a great alternative to the using a credit card. However, it’s extremely important that customers take note of the fine print and know what to expect.

Holiday shopping online

Some online merchants offer layaway plans too.

Online Layaway:

Layaway purchase plans are not limited to brick-and-mortar retail outlets; some online merchants use them, as well. Some layaway sites operate like a combination shopping search engine and online shopping mart: The companies have hundreds of merchants and online retailers selling name brand items.

First, you select a product. Then, you pay: some sites require electronic debiting from your checking account; others require that you pay by check or money order through postal mail. Still others allow you to pay with credit or debit cards, or use online payment services. Once you’ve paid the balance, the online layaway service pays the merchant, and the merchant sends you the product.

When buying items on layaway, BBB advises consumers to get everything in writing and offers the following checklist of questions to ask:

• How much time do I have to pay off the item?
• When are the payments due?
• How much do I have to put down?
• Are there any storage or service plan fees?
• What happens if I miss a payment? Are there penalties? Does the item return to inventory?
• Can I get a refund or store credit if I no longer want the item after making a few payments?
• What happens if the item goes on sale after I’ve put it on layaway?
• Does the retailer or third-party layaway service have a good BBB rating?

Clearly understand the risks of layaway.  Remember companies are holding merchandise for you that could be sold to other consumers.  If you miss payments or do not fulfill the obligations agreed upon when the items were put into layaway, then you risk losing your money, the items and your holiday spirit!

One Last Thing:  Let’s remember to support our Small Businesses. Besides national chains such as Walmart and Toys ‘R’ Us, don’t overlook your local retailers that might offer layaway plans too. If you decide to shop locally, it doesn’t hurt to ask if they, too, have layaway plans. Some stores will even work with you on establishing payment plans if they don’t already have a layaway plan in effect.

Master Gardeners Seek Donations for Veterans Memorial

Veterans Memorial Patriot Park Fayetteville, GA

The Fayette County Master Gardeners are seeking donations to finish the Fayette County Veterans Memorial in Fayetteville’s Patriot Park. The funds will be used to construct plant beds with soil amendments as well as to purchase and plant trees, shrubs, flowers, and sod. Additional signage is also needed to bring an educational element to the garden. Work is scheduled to begin in early December.

The Veterans Memorial was built by the City of Fayetteville with donations from local individuals and corporations to honor Fayette County citizens who gave their lives in all wars. Councilman Larry Dell spearheaded construction of the monument, and it was dedicated on November 9, 2013. The Public Works is now responsible for maintenance. An irrigation contractor has committed to installing a sprinkler system which will allow the planting portion of the project to continue.

The Master Gardeners estimate that about $7000 is needed to complete the project. Tax deductible donations can be sent to the Fayette County Master Gardener Association (or FMGA) at P.O. Box 142532, Fayetteville, GA 30214. For more information about the project, please call 770-305-5412.
