Scammers are making the rounds with a new trick that people across the country are falling prey to. It starts with a simple email claiming you've purchased something from a known retailer, but you know you haven't. However, many people assume they've been hacked follow the link, type in their password and suddenly they really have been hacked
We sat down with Tyler Patton, Regional Director of the Better Business Bureau.
He explained that scammers do a very good job impersonating a real retailer. He said that a legitimate site would not want you to verify account information by email. If you are concerned he said it is always best to call the company but do not use any phone numbers on a questionable email. He also said to always have your anti-virus software up to date, and to have any updates of an app downloaded on your phone.
