What is a Gift Card Scam?

Scammers often pose as trusted organizations or individuals, such as government agencies, well-known companies, or even friends and family. They ask victims to purchase gift cards and share the card numbers and PINs. Once this information is given, the scammer can use the gift card funds, making it nearly impossible to recover the money.
