as gifts. but before you do.. you need to know about a new scam. 13 action news anchor beth fisher shows you what to look out for.. so you don't waste your money. thieves have just developed a new way of stealing the value of your gift card. but they don't do this at the rack in the store. they're doing this to anyone trying to sell their card. it happened to zac wagner. he wanted cash for his card. so he posted his $400 gift card on craigslist. in no time, he had an offer to
6:10 pm
i got a call.... he asked me how much i wanted for it, i confirmed $350." zac says he started to arrange a hand off. "he wanted to meet me at the best buy down the road on my lunch break the next day." but then the buyer asked for one last thing. "then he asked if i could call and verify it, because he didn't want to drive half an hour and end up with a bad gift card. i figured that's reasonable, i would ask the same thing." using a 3-way call, the buyer asked zac to call best buy and they could hear the available balance on the card. zac can't believe what happened next. "at that point he must have got the numbers from the gift card, and used it to spend almost all of it!" somehow the buyer was able to get the gift card number, based on the keys zac pushed on his phone. an hour later they drained the card, buying a $350 playstation at a california best buy store. the lesson here, craigslist may not be your safest place to put your card up for sale.
6:11 pm
--cardpool --cardcash --gift card granny --and zac says next time: "don't call and confirm it, they can steal the number based on touch tones, which was news to me." this appears to be a new scam. there's news reports of lowe's gift cards also being drained the exact same way. best buy is reminding customers to treat gift cards as cash, and make sure no one sees or hears the card number. fisher helping you, so you dont waste your money. the break-in of a store..... that looked more like a scene.... out of a movie.... has police looking for some crooks.... tonight!! up next.. we'll show you the strange way they got inside.. then got away with 150-thousand dollars in merchandise.
