Its almost time for college students to head back to school. But if you or your family are packing up for the fall semester, the Better Business Bureau has a few tips to keep in mind.

The BBB says college students can often be the target of scams, especially when they are new to an area.

Students should be wary of “too good to be true” apartment listings and should never hand over credit card information before seeing the space in person.

There are also often fake credit card scams. While college may be a good time to get your first credit card, some of the programs are phony and designed to get your personal information. Experts recommend doing a lot of research, both on the offer and the bank, before applying for any new credit.

It may also be tempting to reduce loan payments or get a break on tuition, but the BBB says guarantees for scholarships or grants can be a red flag.

Search the companys name for any scam alerts.
