CHICAGO (CBS) — Consumer advocates were warning about a new email scam designed to trick you into sharing your sensitive personal information.
The Better Business Bureau said the email scam purportedly promises to identify child sex predators in your community. However, anyone who gets the emails should not click on any of the links they find in them.
“If it’s malware that they’re looking to install, the secondary issue that we have on these type of scams is that they can take over your computer. They can get the personal information out of your computer,” spokesman Tom Joyce said.
