Letters from Santa scam warning

(Better Business Bureau) (Better Business Bureau)

The Better Business Bureau has a warning for those of you who may want to get a letter from Santa for your child.

There are two scams, making the rounds right now.

In the first, you're asked to enter a lot of personal information. The other scam involves a $20 fee.

In both cases, the thieves have your information but never send the letter.

So how can you protect yourself?

Watch for poor grammar and spelling- that's a scam. 

Also, when entering your credit card information, make sure the website starts with "https." That “S” stands for secure.

And ignore ads that call for immediate action.
