CURRENT CAMPUS/COMMUNITY SAFTEY NOTICE
The University of Florida Police Department, Gainesville Police Department, and the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office reminds you to stay safe during the upcoming holiday shopping season. Black Friday kicks the season off where an estimated 89 million shoppers will take advantage of sales and spend an estimated 59 billion dollars. Cyber Monday will follow a few days later. Consumers will not have to wait in endless lines or fight for parking spaces, shopping instead from home, where they will spend in excess of one billion dollars.
Here are some tips to keep you safe while you shop for your holiday gifts.
• Don’t buy more than you can safely carry.
• If someone or something appears suspicious, please contact law enforcement by call 9-1-1 and let them investigate the individual or situation. Please call immediately and don’t delay.
• Save all your receipts and verify them against your banking statements.
• Carry your purse close to your body or your wallet in a front pants pocket.
• Have your keys in hand and ready when approaching your car.
• Don’t leave purchases visible in your vehicle windows. Lock them in the trunk.
• Have a plan in advance with shopping partners or children in case you are separated.
• Use a credit card rather than your debit card. Credit card payments can be withheld if there is a dispute and if the card is stolen you won’t be responsible for more than $50 of fraudulent charges. You cannot withhold with your debit card. Payments are made directly to the store from your account at the time of transaction and you could be liable for up to $500, depending when you report fraudulent use.
• If using a public WiFi hotspot, make sure it is secure. If not, your payment information could be compromised.
• Read the small print. You don’t want to accidentally sign up for subscriptions.
• Purchase event tickets carefully from trusted sources.
• Print your receipts and reconcile them against your credit card statement.
