Email scam

Another scam going around. You get an email from ShopBop to confirm an order you didn’t actually place. It provides a link to check the order which you would be inclined to do to find out what’s going on. The link actually takes you to a site that installs malware on your computer.

This type of email could be set up to look like it came from ANY on-line sales site like Amazon or The bottom line is you should NEVER click on a link in ANY email.

If you want to check order status or even to see if you actually DO have an order with someone, just go to their website manually by typing in their site name (,, in your browser address bar. If you don’t have a login for the site you couldn’t possibly have placed an order.
