Beware the Christmas scams


At this time of year, the scammers go into overdrive. Two that busy florists need to be aware of are the claims your Facebook page has been compromised or deliveries that need to be dealt with.


The Facebook scam suggests that your page has violated Meta terms or that you need to validate your page.


They look really serious, but they are absolutely not real and highly sophisticated phishing attempts to get you to either register private information or give credit card information … both of which can result in your page being hacked or money taken.


The second – and as covered here by leading consumer advocate Which - is that an order for delivery needs attention or that you must pay something to get it delivered. It can look incredibly genuine - the scammers use official looking company logos and layout – but again it’s just a scam to get you to enter your personal details and credit card info which are then used unlawfully.

It is easy to get fooled but PLEASE pay attention to any odd looking messages and DO NOT CLICK anything unless you are 100% sure it is legit.
