According to the National Retail Federation, 121 million people plan to shop online on Cyber Monday. Most people hope to snag a great deal, but many cyber criminals see the day as an opportunity to cash in.
The Better Business Bureau has advice for anyone who plans to shop online today.
1. Shop on trustworthy websites. Look for the BBB seal and https:// in the search bar when you are checking out.
3. Pay with a credit card whenever possible so charges are easier to dispute and keep track of.
4. Know the store's return policy and keep documentation of your order for future reference.
5. If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is.
