National Cyber Security Alliance executive director Michael Kaiser provided tips for a scam-free holiday online shopping. According to him, scammers lure their victims by offering incredibly low-priced products. When you encounter this, immediately turn it down. He also encouraged online shoppers to use secured connections and websites.
When making online payments, it is better to use third party payment like Amazon Payments, Apple Pay or PayPal to minimize the chance of inputting your credit card information. It is also good to check on reviews for vendors, especially when you are buying from an unfamiliar store. Lastly, monitor your accounts regularly.
