FBI cyber shopping warning

Posted by Rachel Leigh email

(WFLX) - The FBI is sending out a cyber shopping warning. According to the FBI, the holidays are a prime time when scammers set up fake Web sites that look legitimate.

Some go as far as sending phony electronic greeting cards. "They go, 'Oh, it's a Christmas card, let me open this thing up'. And what happens, after you click on that attachment, it could download some malicious code," warned FBI Unit Chief Kevin Burton.

The best advice: Update your virus software, and if a Web site seems suspicious, double check it before you type in any personal information.
