WICHITA, Kan. Your bracket picks have been made, but that might not mean you are in the clear. Hopefully, you paid close attention when deciding which brackets to fill out.
"These scammers are true professionals, so they are aware of what's going on within our community," said Better Business Bureau State Director Denise Groene.
Groene says a lot of brackets have money involved. And while many of them are reputable, some websites are using the concept to scam victims. The Better Business Bureau says these fake websites will ask for information like your name, phone, address, email, and sometimes even financial information. If you fall for it, it could lead to identity theft.
"Consumers just need to be cautious and know who they're giving their information to," Groene said. "Make sure it's a reputable site who's going to protect their information and security."
Also, some of these fictitious websites will have the option to download a link to input your teams. A malware could be connected, installing a virus on your computer, and allowing scammers to access your personal information.
