Cyber Monday Scams

Do you plan to shop online today for Cyber Monday? Some words of caution before you click-and-buy.

There are supposed to be alot of deals online from companies like Amazon and Walmart — to mom and pops that sell on the web. But the better business bureau says be careful. Deal with well known companies. Make sure your anti-virus and anti-spyware software is up to date. And, best to pay with a credit card instead of debit card. And the legitimate companies do not send emails claiming problems with an order, and then ask for financial info. If you get an e-mail that says there’s a problem, just call the company to see if it’s legit or a scam.
