JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster is warning people to watch out for a scam email purporting to bill them for thousands of dollars of tickets to various events.

Koster said the email labeled as coming from "StubHub Orders" thanks consumers for ordering tickets to events and provides an order date and shipping information. He said the email emphasizes that the consumer's credit card has not yet been charged but will be within 48 hours. And it asks people to click on a link to view their order confirmation.

The attorney general said people should not click on the link, which goes to a site where scammers can access personal information, charge an account or create a virus and hack into the person's computer.
