The State of Tennessee's Attorney General's office website warms of scams this holiday season. The office says that there are a lot of signs that a message is a scam.
Messages promising urgency or money right away is a common threat.
Home delivery scams are also common this time of year. The office warns that if you get an email that says you've missed a package, check with the delivery service before giving over any credit information.
Elder scams are also common around this time.
The office asks that you practice safe habits over the internet and watch over family members who may be at risk.
