ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Like many other people this holiday season, you're probably waiting on packages to arrive at your doorstep.

You may even get an email that says the postal service or UPS tried to make a delivery, but no one was at home. The email will ask you to click on a link, where you can download an attachment with a receipt to take to the post office or UPS store for your package.

Don't click on that link!

Scammers could infect your computer with a virus and steal personal or banking information.

Better Call Harry and the Better Business Bureau has tips to keep you safe from cyber criminals.
