Gift cards are for gifts, not for payments. If someone convinced you to give them the numbers on a gift card or send them a photo, hang onto the card and your receipt, and report it to the card issuer right away. Please refer to the Federal Trade Commission’s website for more consumer advice on gift card scams.
