    BEWARE!

    Black Friday has given rise to an epidemic of scam websites with great "deals' that only result in harvesting your credit card information.

    Arc'teryx jackets at 75-89 % off MSRP at arcteryxcanadaoutlet.com = .CON Arc'teryz says they have no such dealer. Note the fractured "Engrish," lack of telephone number. and lack of address..

    "Items can be returned for a refund or exchange with 7 days of the date of purchase. [i.e before you receive them - if you receive anything] But the reason for returns caused by yourself(eg,size,color you choose), cannot be accepted.... Sepcial circumstances may require partnership with corporate business partners"

    Credit card co says not authorized to use MasterCard, contrary to website.

    Ditto Arcteryxclothing.us and arcteryxen.com

    Watch your 6.

    This is why I only shop certain places on the web. If it's a site I've never heard of I steer clear.

    ‘‘Tis the season...Joe Hallanbeck said it best!

    ‘Well, there's not much more to tell than that. Water's wet, the sky's blue. And old Satan Claus, Jimmy, he's out there. And he's just getting stronger.”

    With Black Friday almost over they must be saving me for last. I've just been getting the usual emails from businesses I already purchase from.
