But throughout all the year's seasons, there are those who seek to fool consumers with much more malevolent purposes. They come costumed in many disguises: As agencies of the federal government, local law enforcement, tech support from computer companies, our utility companies, our financial institutions, disaster relief charities, sellers on Craigslist, well known department stores, the list goes on and on.
