Whether you’re buying a gift card online or grabbing one off the shelf at a store, the Better Business Bureau says you should shop carefully to make sure you’re not falling for a scam.

The BBB has some tips to stay safe.  They advise you to double check websites that offer to check your gift card’s balance. Scammers are now making web pages that look legitimate to access the card information and drain the fund on the card.  Also, treat any gift card like cash and report it if it goes missing.
