The Better Business Bureau is cautioning consumers to do their homework before buying Mother's Day gifts online, to avoid getting 'taken.'

Mother's Day is a very different animal this year, as restaurants and many retail stores remain closed. We're all getting creative about how to honor our Moms and make sure she knows she's appreciated, even while we socially distance ourselves from her. The Better Business Bureau says online shopping can be a good solution, but it's important to make sure the site is not a scam and the product is going to be delivered as ordered.
