LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – The Better Business Bureau is warning residents who are looking forward to celebrating the Fourth of July, to keep a look out for scams.
According to the BBB, during the holidays scam artists tend to use social media to capitalize on trends such as e-cards and viral videos. They warn people to be aware of phishing, to watch out for deceptive deals and say to never download attachments unless it is something you are expecting.
Reanna Smith-Hamblin with the BBB explained, "You always need to be cautious of those few too good to be true advertisements that are out there, make sure you look at the fine print."
She said if you plan to attend a Fourth of July event make sure you are buying tickets directly from the venue or other trusted ticket outlets.
