As the holiday season draws near, so do thoughts of holiday shopping, and that has the Better Business Bureau of South Dakota (BBB) warning people of online shopping scams.

They say the vast majority of consumers who were scammed shopped on fake websites that promised low prices and fast delivery.

According to the Better Business Bureau’s scam tracker, online shopping scams cost consumers $380 million last year.

A few tips from the BBB include searching for online reviews, using a map app to verify the business’s address, and paying by credit card, which offers the most protection against loss.
