As always millions of people will celebrate Cyber Monday by taking advantage of the many deals and discounts online. But while shoppers are clicking and adding to their carts, they should also be cautious of cyber scammers. 

Experts say these scammers can imitate major cooperation websites.

Better Business Bureau Regional Director, Adam Price, said this is one of the major times of the year where scammers prey on shoppers. He went on to say that shoppers don’t realize that they are putting their credit card and personal information into the wrong hands.

“The best way to make sure that the site is secure is by checking to see if there’s a lock symbol within the URL verifying that the site is safe. Also make sure the URL has https and not just http. Last but not least don't click on any unwanted e-mails,” Price said.

Price also says if deals seems too good to be true it likely is.

You also want to make sure you read the fine print, so you are not signed up for monthly charges.
