WLOX Editorial: Beware of holiday scams

The Christmas Holiday Season, is a time of celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. It is a time for family, sharing, and giving.  Unfortunately it can also be a time when others try to take advantage of the charity of good people.          

The Better Business Bureau is warning us about holiday scams and frauds. There are bogus web sites, fake coupons, stolen gift cards, phony emails from Grandma, and the list goes on. 

It is sad that there are people trying to scam us at the time of year when we may be the most vulnerable; in the mood to give. But there is plenty of real need in our community, so just be sure where money is going, so it can do the most good.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
