entice folks to get out early this

one more time.

And that's exactly what retailers

shoppers, they're also now apparently
popular with scammers.

Here's how it works.

A crook goes into the store and
writes down the indentification number

on the back of the card.

Days later, thinking the card has
been activitated, the scammer goes to
the retailers website and with the ID
number spends the gift card over the
internet.

So when you then go to use it in the
store or online, your card is wiped
out.

ENG#=3 Lorena Ochoa won six titles this
ANCHOR=TRAVIS year, sweeping all the major honors on


the L-P-G-A Tour.


For her efforts the 24-year-old
Mexican golfer has been named The
Associated Press Female Athlete of

the Year.

Ochoa doubled the point total of
runnerup Amelie Mauresmo, the French
tennis star who won Wimbledon

and Australian Open titles this year.

Tiger Woods was named Male Athlete
of the Year yesterday, so this marks
the first time since 1993 that
participants in the same sport have
swept the year-end awards.
