Augusta, GA (WJBF)- A new cyber crime targeting small business is gaining popularity. Criminals are targeting those businesses who sell a product online.
It’s a cloning scam. Criminals purchase domain names similar to that of the small business and copy their web content. When customers make what they think is a purchase from a legitimate business, the criminals get their money, but they don’t get a product, or in some cases, a counterfeit one.
