With Beverly Fabrics closing in Seaside and the closest store way up in Soquel, many seniors are looking for supplies online. Beware of one of the many current scams that are taking place, this one revolving around sewing machines, of all things. Crooks are advertising online and in social media brand-name models of sewing machines for under $100. If it sounds too good to be true, it is. This so-called e-commerce close out sales are typically fake and you will send in your money and never get the product. There is yet another arts and craft scam going on right now where scammers are putting on virtual arts and crafts fairs. When you order something from a booth at one of these online fairs, they will take your money but won’t send you anything.
