Your Black News: Keys To Protecting Privacy On ‘Cyber Monday’

November 30, 2008 Leave a comment Go to comments

identity-theft(WHAS11) -It’s considered the ceremonial kickoff to the online holiday shopping season, and if you like to stay away from the crowds, you might be more of a Cyber Monday person than a Black Friday person. [...]

The Better Business Bureau recommends you focus your shopping with reputable merchants.

The BBB also warns you to use caution when shopping online. Scammers are out there waiting to take advantage of eager consumers.

And always make sure the site is secure.

Double check for the “https,” most importantly the “s”.

That means you are in a secure site for your personal information.

The BBB also recommends you pay with a credit card, because under federal law the shopper can dispute the charges if the items never arrive.

Also, make sure your computer is up to date with the latest anti-virus protection.
