Scam Alert: Don’t Get Taken When Ordering Take Out!

Ordering take-out food is more convenient and more popular than ever.  Unfortunately, scammers love to use technology, too.

Better Business Bureau of the Mid-South President Randy Hutchinson stopped by Wake Up Memphis to discuss this new form of theft with Tim Van Horn.  Hutchinson said scammers have been creating fake (but very real-looking) take-out service websites.  People mistakenly think they are ordering food to-go from their favorites restaurant.  Victims learn upon arrival that the restaurant has not received their order, leaving them disappointed and with any emptier wallet.

Hutchinson cited some local examples of this type of fraud.  He also provided tips on how to avoid becoming a scam victim.
