SALISBURY, Md. - While there are tons of good Cyber Monday deals, there are just as many cyber scams too.
Experts at Advanced Computers in Salisbury gave WMDT some helpful tips. For example, don't make purchases using public Wi-Fi, or on a non-secure site. You should look for the "pad-lock" symbol at the top of the browser, or make sure the web address starts with "https". Also, be on the lookout for spoof emails, that look like an invoice from a purchase, that you never made.
"It basically shows that someone made a purchase. The intent on this is to get you to click on to cancel the order or see what was ordered, but by doing that you're going to infect yourself with a virus," said Phillip Adkins, a PC Technician at Advanced Computers.
Adkins say if you get an email like that and haven't purchased something from that company, don't click on the links. Call your bank immediately and notify them about it.
If you do happen to get a virus, there are a number of repair shops in the area, like Advanced Computers, that will move those viruses for you.
