Be alert for scams that exist on the internet this time of year. Just seeing the words When it is Christmas season, Cyber Monday, does not mean there really will be deals to be found. Be a buyer in the know. Know your prices. Avoid going to any sites that send you emails to avoid fake sights that look like the real thing. If you want to go to that sight because of the email, type the URL directly to avoid internet copy cat sites. A site that is offering free shipping or other giveaways, will give you the coupon code without asking you any details. If a site wants personal information from you, like your credit card details or your social security number, etc, do not give the site your information.
