from kansas on into parts of illinois and iowa, i should say, and we've got a deets ent amount of snow coming in with that cold air, upwards of a foot and a half or more through the rockies and cascades and great news for the skiers. the christmas gift there for anybody who lovers to ski. >> good morning. day. rain gear likely on standby the commute. patchy drizzles, and 40s and 50s this afternoon. we're tracking rain on the way from the great lake states. doesn't get into new england until 8:00, 9:00 tonight. and we'll have showers and even brief downpours tomorrow night and that moves out very early tomorrow morning. that stays, temps 60s in the windy. >> and that's your late weather. >> al, thank you very much. coming up next "rossen reports live," yeah, live, baby, from

we are back now with another installment of "rossen reports live" and today we're exposing holiday scams. >> national correspondent jeff rossen did some digging to uncover three of the biggest cons that are happening right now, and how you can protect yourself. >> good morning, guys. >> start off with the gift cards right beside you there. >> you were saring you're saying you are scared of gift cards. why? >> my fear is always that you'll buy it and then you'll give it activated there. he's no verification. >> this is along those lines. >> we have some of the most popular gift cards on my hand. you go to the store and buy them for somebody and what the
tonight racks of stores and they are turning the gift cards over, have this one right here, zoom in that camera on it real quick what, they are doing is they are scratching off, took a freeze-frame of it, see that little number on bottom right at the bottom of the card, scratching off the number and putting it back in the rack so when you go bite card most don't look to make sure it's not scratched off and when you go to activate it they keep calling the number to see when the thing has been activated and they have that code and they spend it before you can spend it. >> wow. what should you do then to protect yourself? >> when you go to the rack and bite gift cards, make sure you're buying it and it's like this. it's sealed up. if not a lot of stores sell them loose, flip it over and make sure it is not scratched out, and a lot of stores keep it behind the counter. that's always the best advice to you. >> okay. >> make sure nothing is scratched out. >> a lot of us love online shopping and thieves are getting in on that as well when your package is left. >> this is huge. >> yeah. >> we talk about this on the "today" show every single holiday season and this is when the thieves go to doorsteps and know a lot of gifts are being delivered and they steal them right off of people's doorsteps. we actually have some video to show you of this in action. i think we do. >> we do.
these thieves walk up. how heartless is that stealing these gifts. actually a case of a woman, a mom, who stitched together a bunch of t-shirts of her killed in action soldier son and there she is right there. it was delivered to her, a company do it, and a heartless thief stole it right off her doorstep and police got the thief later on but there are ways to avoid this. >> are these thieves cruising the neighborhood looking for -- >> they follow delivery trucks and will find a ups truck and fedex truck, any one of these run to the doorstep when the guy takes off because most people aren't home during the day and know the critical hours during the day that you're probably not >> what do you do? number one, manage your deliveries in most cases. what you want to do is click on delivered at a certain time and want to know when it's being delivered. track your delivery. how easy is that, they give you
i like this one, too, if your employer allows it, have it delivered to work and that way you know there's somebody there, you can actually take it. and the other way do it, the best advice, set up the shipping address to your local fedex or post office and then you pick if up how you want to. >> if there's a business like you frequent, dry cleaners, some of them will let you if you're a good customer since someone is usually there 9:00 to 5:00 kind of hours. >> third scam has to do the website you're shopping on. make sure they're authentic sites. >> there are so many fake sites out there, and when we do, the counterfeiters have figured out a way to make themselves come up high in the google search. when you type in ray-ban, for example, if you want sunglasses, you may get a fake website that comes to the top. we actually have a side by side to show you. can you guys tell which one is fake and which one is real. which one is fake? >> i think the one that says now open is fake. i think that's the fake one.
>> believe it or not, that's the real one on the right. the fake one on the left. real quick, piece of advice, when you go to the url at top, make sure it says https, the "s" means secure. and don't go through google. type in rayban.com and go there yourself. >> thanks, jeff, keeping us hot days. >> the holiday hassle already stressing you out? next what will save your sanity. that's coming up up. fortunately, many have found a different kind of medicine that lowers blood sugar. rimagine what it would be like to love your numbers. discover once-daily invokana . it's the #1 prescribed in the newest class p of medicines that work with the kidneys to lower a1c. rinvokana is used along with diet and exercise tto significantly lower blood sugar t in adults with type 2 diabetes. p it's a once-daily pill that
