HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -
It's definitely fun to get letters, e-cards, and email
messages from friends and loved ones for Valentine's Day, but beware. There are
imposters out there who want to entice you into opening a link that could draw
you to a website that could infect your computer with spyware or a virus.
Michelle Mason of the Better Business Bureau of North
Alabama said, "If the message is from a specific person and you know that
person, then most likely that's going to be valid, but if it's a generic
message that says a family member, a loved one, or a friend has sent it you
want to stay clear."
Valentine's Day is also another huge shopping day. A lot
of people order flowers, candies, and other gifts online. The same rules apply
as with any other holiday shopping: take care to only shop on sites you are
familiar with and that you have checked out.
"You might find some great deals," Mason continued, "but
you aren't going to have a great deal if you are dealing with a company that
has had a lot of complaints and doesn't take care of their customers."
The last thing you want is to be left with a sour taste
on the sweetest day of the year.
"What may sound like a great deal may not be a great deal
if they don't honor the pricing, or the delivery, and you certainly don't want
to disappoint your loved one if they don't get that special surprise you are
trying to give to them."
