Ah Labor Day, that great celebration of worker contribution, worker rights and the founding of unions. The problem is though – as with all holidays – it’s also a perfect way for scammers to make money. The following scams are what we found in the last week – read on to find out more. To be fowarding something!

Maui Jim Sunglasses Scam

The real Maui Jim is a very popular American sunglasses company. Recently though, many fake Maui Jim online stores have been popping up. Consumers have reported receiving text messages advertising discounts that sound too good to be true – unfortunately, they are.

These are phishing messages, designed to lead users to fake websites via the attached phishing links. If you shop on these websites, you will lose your money, compromise your personal data and end up empty-handed.
