Kentuckians Warned of Scam Emails this Holiday Shopping Season

Kentuckians doing online shopping this Christmas season should be on the lookout for scam emails. Kentuckians say they are receiving what appear to be legitimate emails from popular retailers that are actually scams. The scam email is often personalized and includes a logo of a retailer such as PayPal, Apple, or Amazon, and instructs the receiver to resolve an issue with their online account or order by reentering their bank, credit card, or Social Security numbers. To spot a scam email, website, or app, Kentuckians should watch for misspelled words, avoid clicking on email hyperlinks, and pay attention the sender’s email address.
