Scammers Seizing Opportunities From Royal Wedding

Internet security experts say people should beware of websites and emails that can infect your computer as interest builds in Friday's royal wedding in London.

Bob Sullivan with MSNBC.com says the royal wedding could be the "super bowl of scams."

Internet safety expert Marian Merritt ran a search of "Princess Kate Middleton" and quickly found alluring links that would have infected her computer, had her anti-virus software not warned her away.

In addition to poisoned websites, scam artists may entice you to click on their link through social networking sites, as well as through spam.

Sullivan says the way to avoid the scam traps is by sticking with websites you know and trust.
