Internet Scam

By  | 

Tis the season to shop online but Colorado police are warning cyber-shoppers to watch out.

They say there's a new scam involving "paypal", an internet company that processes transactions for retail sites such as E-Bay.

Victims receive an e-mail telling them their Paypal account is about to expire.

Users will, then, have to input personal information to update their accounts.

That information then becomes fair game for identity theft.
