Avoiding Cyber-Monday Scams

I don’t know about you, but I’m an unrepentant self-admitted Cyber-Monday shopper.

I simply prefer the convenience of shopping online for the holidays compared to the crowds and hassles associated with Black Friday which I try to avoid like the Black Plague.

However, online shopping does have its own pitfalls – identity theft, computer hacking and compromised debit cards are just a few.

Here’s a useful infographic from the folks at Veracode that offers some insight into how consumers and merchants can protect themselves and their personal information while shopping online.

Question: Do you prefer to do your holiday shopping online or in person?

    I shop online. I am too old to cut a grandma for a discount DVD player that is going to break within a week.

    I think the perfect solution is to avoid the hype- don’t shop Black Friday and avoid CyberMonday- work instead! Like you are supposed to be doing!
