Every year, scams seem a little more real.
That's why the Better Business Bureau issued a warning about one affecting those of you using Paypal.com.
This one looks like Paypal is sending you a payment confirmation. Unless you paid for something using Paypal, leave it alone. Don't click the cancel link.
"Doing so allow these scam artists to infiltrate your computer and access your information," said Paula Fleming, with the Better Business Bureau of New England.
More than 218 million people world wide have paypal accounts.
Fleming said, "What's even more terrifying is how real these actually look."
Like a lot of scams, if it looks suspicious it probably is.
"Confirm it by calling the business or checking the web site. We simply went on to Paypal. And they were very on top of things and had a warning to consumers," according to Fleming.
As you shop on-line this holiday season, be careful there are a lot of grinches lurking behind the bits and bytes of the internet.
