How to Avoid Mother's Day Email Scams

 In addition to showcasing your sensitivity, choosing your own gift will let you avoid an email scam that could end with a stolen credit card number.

Mother's Day scammers start off with an email that reads: "Don't Forget Mother's Day - $19.99 Flowers." Clicking on the embedded links, however, will take dutiful sons and daughters (mostly sons, in this case) to a website chock full of manly items for sale, ranging from gourmet hamburgers to Aston Martins. Good luck actually buying any of these, though: The site is just a front to steal credit-card information via phishing attacks.
