In this week's FactFinder Minute, FactFinder 12 warns you about scams that aren't new, although the latest reports impacting Kansans are recent.

A man in Hodgeman County reported a phishing email to the AARP. The man says he received an email about a refund for a package his wife had returned, but there was no such package.

He noticed a few red flags with the email: There was no company name, the message had poor grammar and spelling errors and the email asked him to call a number back in order to get a refund.

In Ford County, the sheriff's office warns hackers can get access to your friends' email accounts and write to you, saying they need an iTunes gift card for a relative. but they're traveling and are having a hard time doing it online. So, they ask you to buy it, and to send them all the card information.
