For scams, it’s the most wonderful time of year


You’ve no doubt heard about “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” Well, how about the “12 Scams of Christmas”?

That’s what McAfee, the Internet security company, headlined a recent news release aimed at warning consumers to be extremely vigilant this holiday-shopping season against Scrooge-inspired fraudsters.

“The potential for identity theft increases as consumers share personal information across multiple devices that are often underprotected,” Michelle Dennedy, vice president and chief privacy officer for McAfee, said in a statement.

“Understanding criminals’ mind-sets and being aware of how they try to take advantage of consumers can help ensure that we use our devices the way they were intended – to enhance our lives, not jeopardize them.”
