Vancouver, BC – Mother’s Day is around the corner and we love nothing better than to send e-cards, flowers and other special gifts. While scammers may love their mom’s too, they’ll think nothing of scamming you and your mom out of cash.
“Mother’s Day is one of the biggest spending times of the year after Christmas,” say Evan Kelly, Senior Communications Advisor for BBB serving Mainland BC. “Flower shopping online is fast and convenient, but not without its risks. While the vast majority of people are thrilled with their purchases, others have learned these transactions can lead to profound disappointment.”
As with any special time of the year, BBB warns of potential scams when shopping for Mom:
