With Christmas just around the corner, the Better Business Bureau has released its '12 Scams of Christmas.' Everyone should take the time to read through the list.

Here it is (in no particular order):

  1. Look-Alike Websites
  2. Fake Shipping Notifications
  3. Social Media Gift Exchange
  4. Phony Charities
  5. Grandparents Scams
  6. Letters from Santa
  7. Temporary Holiday Jobs
  8. Unusual Forms of Payments
  9. Free Gift Cards
  10. Travel Scams
  11. E-Cards
  12. Puppy Scams

The key thing to remember this time of the year is, "If something seems too good to be true, it probably is - be extra cautious."
