The holidays are meant for spreading good cheer. Unfortunately, with stuffed stockings and plentiful presents, it's also prime time to be robbed. Here are some tips to avoid falling victim to ill intentioned people's traps.
- Lock all your doors and windows before leaving for holiday events.
- Avoid leaving your open or unlocked car unattended while transporting goods — food and gifts at festivities.
- If you're attending multiple parties, do not leave goods in clear view in your vehicle. Put them in the trunk or pull the shade if you have an SUV.
- Pull in your garage to unload your loot.
