HOUSTON — Returning holiday gifts can be a hassle, but some scammers are out there trying to steal from you in the process. Calling customer service may sound like a good option, just be careful who you call.

“If you go to your web browser and type in customer support for “x company,” it’s common that those first ones that come up on the list are entirely fraudulent,” Kathy Stokes, director of Fraud Prevention for AAR, said.

According to a recent AARP survey of shoppers 18 and up, 80% of US consumers have been targeted by scams tied to the holidays.

“If someone steals money from your account because you thought you were talking to tech support, and you gave them access to your computer and thus your financial accounts and drain them, and you call your bank and say, and the bank, unfortunately, is going to say you are a party to that transaction,” Stokes said.
