Fraudsters Also Target Cyber Monday

Many people are taking advantage of good deals online, especially during cyber Monday, but fraudsters are also looking to take advantage of you!

Keep in mind a few good tips before you give out your payment information.

Authorities say it's a good idea to buy from a creditable retailer, always shop with someone you know and trust.

Also if the deal is too good to be true it probably is, and authorities say use a credit card instead of a debit card.

"You can dispute the charges on a credit card where on a debit card it comes right out of your account and basically it's gone," said Hall County Sheriff Jerry Watson.

Another good idea when ordering online look for https in the web address, because the 's' indicates its a secured site.

Also remember crooks who do home robberies are out this time of year too, so have someone at home who can pickup the package when its delivered.
