Postcard Scam Reported Locally 11 Jun 14

A new postcard scam has been reported in the local area, as well as around the state. The Better Business Bureau says if you receive a postcard alerting you to an unclaimed reward of $100 in gift savings from Target or Walmart, report it to your local post office and the FTC.  The postcard asks the victim to call a toll-free number and requests a one-time activation fee – payable by credit card. The Minnesota Better Business Bureau’s Dan Hendrickson says you should never give out financial or personal information to unknown parties over the phone, through the mail, or on the internet.
