Watch out for scams!
Mother’s day is almost here! If you are thinking about scheduling last minute flower deliveries, beware! With thousands of online flowers being ordered, crooks have hit a new low of setting up and then promoting fake online flower shops. They attract buyers by claiming to have cheap prices, but in reality are just taking credit card info and, you guessed it, not delivering flowers. Do your homework! Don’t get lured by cheap prices and research the seller before you buy. Make sure every mom has the chance to be celebrated this mother’s day!
Be a fraud fighter! If you can spot a scam, you can stop a scam.
