Holiday Scams

More and more consumers are shopping for the holidays online and are accustomed to the influx of purchase and delivery confirmation emails. 
This added email traffic creates a scenario where scammers can sneak malware-laden spam emails into consumers' accounts masked as shipping or delivery alerts.  
The Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection warns consumers to be on the lookout for phony shipping emails and to avoid clicking links or opening attachments in these messages.
