(Toledo, OH) The Toledo Better Business Bureau is warning about online scams involving this year's hot Christmas toy.
The warning comes about Fingerlings, where many stores are constantly sold-out of the cute finger-puppet monkeys or limiting sales to one per customer.
The BBB says that's bait for scammers who are either selling counterfeit Fingerlings or simply making sales they have no intention of fulfilling. Most of the scams involve online sales at websites with fake Fingerlings or feature a fake Facebook ad.
At least 20 complaints have been filed where consumers are either unable to contact the scammer or their order fails to arrive and getting a refund is impossible.
