BBB Scam Alert: Watch out for online shopping scams on Prime Day

Prime Day is right around the corner (June 21 and 22), and these days are prime for scammers to try and take advantage of consumers.

Before you search for deals, add this information to your cart so you know what scams to be on the lookout for.

http://ow.ly/8G8M50Fdqik

This year, Amazon isn’t the only retailer rolling out discounts for Prime Day. But more deals mean more chances for scammers to capitalize on the buzz and trick shoppers. Be wary of phishing scams, misleading ads, and lookalike websites.

BBB urges all consumers to be prepared for a weather emergency or disaster. Creating a disaster plan for what to do before, during and after an emergency may make a big difference to your safety and comfort.

BBB offers the following tips and resources to help consumers and businesses prepare.

Emergency Supply Kit

You may need to shelter in place (stay at home) during an emergency, such as a severe storm. Keep enough supplies in your home to survive for at least three days.

• One gallon of drinking water per person per day
• Nonperishable, ready-to-eat canned foods and manual can opener
• First aid kit
• Flashlight
• Battery-operated AM/FM radio
• Extra batteries
• Whistle
• Iodine tablets or one quart of unscented bleach (for disinfecting water ONLY if directed to do so by health officials) and eyedropper (for adding bleach to water)
• Phone that does not rely on electricity

Evacuation “Go Bag”

Other emergencies may require evacuation from your home. BBB suggests having a Go Bag ready for every household member in an easy-to-carry container such as a backpack.

Your Go Bags should include:
• Copies of your important documents in a waterproof and portable container (insurance cards, photo IDs, proof of address, etc.)
• Extra set of car and house keys
• Copies of credit/ATM cards and $50-$100 in cash in small denominations.
• Bottled water and nonperishable food such as energy or granola bars
• Flashlight
• Battery-operated AM/FM radio
• Extra batteries
• Medications
• Doctors’ names and phone numbers
• First aid kit
• Contact and meeting place information for your household and a small local map
• Child care, pet care, and other special items
• Blankets and pillows
