Gift cards are a great idea for that person that is hard to buy for. However, they are a great way for cyber criminals to make some fast, easy money. Typically, what happens is you can buy a $50.00 gift card for $20.00. It sounds too good to be true! Well, it probably is. If you are wanting to buy gift cards, buy them directly from the official retailer and not a third party site like EBAY. If you go through other venues, you may find out you bought a $50.00 gift card that has $3.35 left on it.
