Experts are warning about possible scams that may pop up after Target's data breach. The Better Business Bureau says shoppers should be on the look out for not only suspicious charges to their accounts, but suspicious emails.

They say inboxes might see an influx of messages with a link or zip file, claiming they can help you secure your account after the breach.

These emails may even appear to be from someone you know, but have the capabilities to hack your computers and gain personal information.

Dan Hendrickson of The Better Business Bureau said, "We feel that'll be the next wave, generally what happens is a scam hits like this, it gets a lot of publicity and then other scammers or the ones behind this one say, hey you know what lets capitalize even further.>

Target says about 40-million credit and debit card accounts nationwide could be compromised for people who shopped between November 27th and December 15th.
