TRUSTDale Tip of the Day: *Last-Minute Christmas Shopping? Stay Safe

There's a lot to do before Christmas, and not a lot of time to do it. That can make you rushed and distracted if you're doing last-minute shopping and errands which could make you vulnerable to theft.

Don't let criminals be the Grinch who steals your Christmas. Here are some tips to help you protect yourself.

  • When shopping, men should keep their wallets in a front pocket or an inside jacket pocket, preferably one that zippers. Women should keep their purses close-up to their bodies and never in a shopping cart.
  • Don't carry cash. Use credit cards as much as possible. If you have to carry cash, only make visible what you need to make your purchase.
  • Hide your purchases in your car. If you have a trunk, put them in there. Cover bags with a blanket if you have an SUV or minivan.
  • Shopping online? Check out the website before buying. Research shopping sites on the Better Business Bureau's website.
  • Above all, trust yourself and your instincts: If something feels wrong, it probably is.
