Updated: Tuesday, December 24 2013, 07:25 AM ESTSome high-tech grinches are scheming up creative ways to steal your Christmas this year. As more people turn to cyber-shopping, more scams are popping up online. On Thanksgiving Day, shoppers got an "early bird" special on Black Friday deals at the Best Buy in Fletcher. While they were cashing in on gifts, thieves have been trying to cash in on them .Officials with Best Buy tell News 13, they would never ask you to provide or verify your personal information online. If you receive a suspicious text, you should report it to your cell phone provider. Remember, never click on a link if there's any question about whether it could be fraud.Email Scams: Just a Click Away
