Better Business Bureau Warns Consumers of Gift Card Reward Scam

 

Don’t be duped into providing personal information

Better Business Bureau - BBBNashville, TN – Consumers in Nashville and surrounding counties are receiving “reward announcements” in one of 3 ways:  a direct phone call, a cell phone text, or in some cases they will receive a letter in the mail.  In either approach, there is a reward number and a phone number to call in order to claim your $100.00 gift card reward from Wal-Mart, Target, or Home Depot.
