Online shopping is more popular than ever, which makes it an inviting place for scammers and fraudsters. However, there are steps you can take to help protect yourself while shopping online:
- Think before you click on "amazing" offers. Be cautious about online shopping promotions and think twice if you are asked to provide your personal or financial information via email or computer pop-up - it may be a scam.
- Research the seller and products independently, and compare prices with other websites.
- Remember: If it sounds too good to be true it probably is.
