With the holiday shopping season nearing crunch time, the Tucson Police Department's (TPD) Financial Crimes Unit is offering some tips to help you avoid becoming a victim of fraud.
Tips include carrying only the credit cards or checks you will need, keeping visual contact with your credit card when making a purchase, and making sure the receipt you sign matches the total of your purchase. You should also hold onto your receipts and compare them with your monthly statements. If you bank online, check your account activity frequently to make sure there aren't any fraudulent charges.
