Chicago, IL – As Mother’s Day approaches, shoppers searching for the perfect gift should exercise caution, warns the Better Business Bureau (BBB). 

Amidst the surge in online shopping, fraudulent websites are emerging, promising unbeatable deals on gifts that are often too good to be true. These sites may deliver products of inferior quality, fail to deliver on time, or not deliver at all. The BBB advises consumers to stick to well-known websites and avoid misleading pop-up ads. 

For those ordering flowers, it is recommended to utilize reputable local florists and verify the existence of shops in other cities before placing an order. Remember, a deal that seems implausibly attractive might just be a scam. 

For verification of business legitimacy or to report suspicious activities, the BBB encourages consumers to visit BBB.org.
