McAfee to Shoppers: Beware the 12 Scams of Christmas


Updated on Mon Dec 3, 2012

Caveat emptor is always wise advice. But it’s particularly important that buyers use caution when shopping online during the holiday season.

McAfee, a maker of security software, has released a list of what it calls “the 12 Scams of Christmas” — and there are some positively frightening examples on the list. For example, did you know there’s a Skype con out there where clicking on a link can lead to having your files held for ransom? And what sort of screwball would run a “fake” charity?

Check out the entire list on McAfee’s blog … and be careful out there.
