Back To School Scams
The Better Business Bureau is warning parents and children of scams targeting students.
The BBB says parents should have a conversation with their child and set up guidelines of what websites they are allowed to use.
If children already have an account on a social media website- parents should make sure no personal information including their address or phone number is used on the website.
The BBB says students are just as likely to be a victim of a scam online.
"Younger and younger kids are getting online these days so you have to have these conversations before you have a financial loss or download a virus on your computer thats irreversible," says Chelsea Dannen.
