Better Business Bureau Warns of ‘Secret Sister Gift Exchange’ Scam

Effingham, IL / Effingham Radio

With Christmas this weekend, the Better Business Bureau is warning of a gift-giving pyramid scam making the rounds on social media called “Secret Sister Gift Exchange.” The ideas is that you buy a gift and send it along and will receive gifts from other people participating. Better Business Bureau Regional Director Joey Keyes says, it won’t actually work out that way.

Not only could you be out some time and money, Keyes says that the gift exchanges violate sites like Facebook’s terms.

As with anything online, especially during the holidays, it it’s too good to be true, it probably isn’t.
