Attorney General Patrick Morrisey announced a week-long series of releases in preparation for the holiday season.
Each day during the week of Dec. 7, the Attorney General’s Office will issue a holiday-related release detailing tips on how to keep you and your family safe from potential scammers during this time of year.
“While the holidays are a happy and festive time, it is also a very popular time of year for those who seek to steal money and personal information,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “We hope these tips will lead to a safe, enjoyable holiday for all West Virginians.”
The upcoming week’s topics will involve evaluating potential holiday employment opportunities, using caution with credit card offers, protecting children from identity theft, giving wisely to charitable organizations and being wary of holiday gift card scams.
