BBB: Beware of the “Secret Sister Gift Exchange”

Social media posts about the ‘exchange’ first began circulating in 2015 and have begun popping back this holiday season. The Better Business Bureau is warning consumers about the “Secret Sister Gift Exchange” again this year.

Here’s the deal: People who participate will receive 36 gifts for sending one gift that’s valued at $10. Next, you invite others to participate and you’ll allegedly receive information on where to mail your gifts.

Warning: The BBB says Secret Sister – and gift chains like it-  are pyramid schemes and Illegal. If you participate in illegal gambling, you could be subject to mail fraud.
