WV AG Warns Of Cyber Monday Scams

November 27th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Attorney General Patrick Morrisey urges shoppers to be wary of scammers when searching for deals this Cyber Monday, Nov. 30. “Online sites will be very busy Cyber Monday, as will scammers and hackers trying to steal your personal information,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “It is critical for consumers to know how to protect themselves from online scams.”  Cyber Monday, developed to encourage online spending through exclusive product offers and discounts, now rivals Black Friday for most retail revenue generated in a single day. It occurs the Monday immediately following Thanksgiving each year.
 
Last year’s numbers showed a continued trend of digital retail growth with more than $2 billion in sales for the first time ever. According to the National Retail Federation, Cyber Monday 2015 is expected to contribute significantly to a projected $105 billion in online holiday sales.
