    Cyber Monday: Online Bargains May Come with Risks

    This year, a record $3.5 billion is expected to be spent on Cyber Monday, which is a 9 percent jump. But along with online deals come online risks. Scott Budman reports. (Published Monday, Nov. 28, 2016)

    More of us spend more money online than ever before.

    Stores know it, and they are loading up websites with bargains.

    This year, a record $3.5 billion is expected to be spent on Cyber Monday, which is a 9 percent jump.

    But along with online deals come online risks.

    Security experts say hackers will try to steal your personal data while you shop, and they tend to focus on non-mainstream websites. So shop on sites you know and trust.

    And if a price looks too good to be true, check elsewhere. You might be looking at a scam.
