WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Attorney General Roy Cooper is urging holiday shoppers to protect themselves from problems with toys and from scams to steal your identity.
"We can avoid holiday stress by spending within our means and learning the rules about refunds, returns and gift cards," Cooper said. "Parents can also take steps to choose safe toys, games and other gifts for their kids."
