LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) --
It's the newest way scam artists are going after the victims online: click-jacking.
The Better Business Bureau
explains how it works:
Like most online scams, you receive an email or text that directs you to a website to win a brand name product, like an iPad. The site looks authentic, but scammers use invisible links.
Upon clicking, a code is activated and victims have inadvertently made amazon purchases, even changed the settings on their computers.
-- Don't fall for teasers like videos that claim to show sensational pictures offers for a free trip.
-- If something looks too good to be true, it probably is.
-- Go to the actual website, as opposed to simply following the posted link.
