Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Kentucky's Attorney General is issuing a warning to residents.

Attorney General Jack Conway said a record number of buyers are turning to their smart phones, tablets and computers to complete their holiday shopping.

These online purchases mean scammers are working overtime to develop fraudulent emails and text messages to gain access to your personal information.

If you are a victim of a consumer scam, you can receive help by contacting the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Hotline at 1-888-432-9257.
