Holiday Scams to Watch Out For

by Prince, Glover & Hayes November 12, 2018

It’s about that time of year for Holiday shopping, and we at PGH have a few tips to share, courtesy of the Better Business Bureau. You can also report or look up scams and frauds using the BBB Scam Tracker.

Be cautious shopping online. Because many retailers now have chip card readers, fraud at bricks-and-mortar stores is down, so scammers have shifted their efforts online. Use a credit (not debit) card online and only shop on secure websites. Look for https in the address (the extra “s” is for “secure”) and for a lock symbol.

Look-alike websites: When shopping online, make sure to use only legitimate websites. Watch out for URLs that use the names of well-known brands along with extra words.

Fake shipping notifications: These can have attachments or links to sites that will download malware on your computer to steal your identity and your passwords. Don’t be fooled by a holiday phishing scam.

E-cards: Electronic cards can be great fun, but be careful. Two red flags to watch out for are: the sender’s name is not apparent; you are required to share additional information to get the card.

Letters from Santa: Several trusted companies offer charming and personalized letters from Santa, but scammers mimic them to get personal information from unsuspecting parents. Check with bbb.org to find out which ones are legitimate.

Emergency scam: Be cautious if you get a call from a family member or friend claiming to be in an accident, arrested, or hospitalized while traveling in another country. Never send money unless you confirm with another family member that it’s true.

Phony charities: Everyone is in a generous mood at the holidays, so scammers take advantage of that with fake charity solicitations in email, on social media sites, and even by text. Check out charities at give.org before donating.

Temporary holiday jobs: Retailers and delivery services need extra help at the holidays, but beware of solicitations that require you to share personal information online or pay for a job lead. Apply in person or go to retailers’ main websites to find out who is hiring.

Unusual forms of payment: Be wary of anyone who asks you to pay for holiday purchases using prepaid debit cards, gift cards, wire transfers, third parties, etc. These payments cannot be traced and cannot be undone.

Free gift cards: Pop-up ads or email offering free gift cards are often just a ploy to get your personal information that can later be used for identity theft.

Social media gift exchange: It sounds like a great deal; buy one gift and get 36 in return. But it’s just a variation on a pyramid scheme and it’s illegal.

Josh Hayes and Coe Baxter Settle Workplace Injury Lawsuit at Mediation

by Prince, Glover & Hayes October 10, 2018

Josh Hayes and Coe Baxter recently settled an on-the-job injury case for $325,000. Their client, while working at a construction site, was seriously injured when a roll of heavy felt dropped over 40 feet and landed on him, causing permanent damage to his hand and thigh. The case settled after months of hard-fought litigation.   This case is especially gratifying because the insurance company insuring the at-fault defendant vowed early in the case never to pay a dime to settle.

Mr. Hayes and Mr. Baxter are very experienced with workplace injury cases. If you or someone you know has been hurt on the job, please contact our firm today for a free consultation.
