Online Scheme Found on Facebook


While you’re surfing the web for those Cyber Monday deals, there’s a scheme you need to know about. 

The Better Business Bureau is warning customers to steer clear of the “Secret Sister” gift exchange on Facebook this year. 

“Secret Sister” promises that you’ll get 36 gifts in return for buying just one, by recruiting others to participate in the gift exchange.  

The U.S. Postal Inspection Services says that participants in the gift exchange could be subject to penalties for mail fraud and illegal gambling.
