CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Worried about online shopping scams?

The Better Business Bureau’s Jason Meza joins KRIS 6 Noon Anchor Mike Gillaspia to discuss online cons.

It’s appropriate since so many people are doing holiday shopping online.

Among the topics discussed include look-alike websites, Santa scammers and fake shipping notifications.

Other schemes that people should be concerned about include free gift cards, phony e-cards and social media gift exchange.

And as always, report all potential scams to bbb.org/scamtracker.
