5 online shopping safety tips for Black Friday and Cyber Monday

CBC News Posted: Nov 28, 2013 12:26 PM CT

Here are five tips for a safe online shopping experience: 

  1. Bookmark reliable online shopping sites: Relying on search engine results can lead you to malicious sites.
  2. Ignore suspicious offers via email: Three out of four spam attachments are malicious in nature. These emails may contain malicious links or file attachments that lead to system infection.
  3. Verify unbelievable offers: Spam and online ads offering unbelievable promos and discounts can lead to web threats.
  4. Double check payment site URLs: Phishers trick users into giving out personal information using fake pages. Be careful, two of the most commonly phished sites are eBay and Paypal.
  5. After you have made your purchase, check your billing statements to monitor transactions: Immediately report any discrepancy to your bank.
