Tis the season — for online scammers. And one security company is warning about ways people can be ripped off during the holidays. According to McAfee, a growing number of people are using mobile devices to shop. Among the scams to be aware of are those that require you to click on links, especially through social media sites. McAfee warns many scammers use Twitter and Facebook to lure people into clicking through on contests or fan pages that advertise hot selling items or discounts on popular products. Those links may actually be ways of installing malware on your mobile device — and swiping your personal information.
