Online scam warning

The FBI is watching your online activity or at least that's what a new scam wants you to believe.

A Somerset computer repair man says he's had several customers reporting a virus that seizes their computers.

To clear your name the pop-up says you must pay hundreds of dollars in fines.

Experts say it's just a scam.

Government agencies would never use pop-up messages to warn you of your online activity.
