Don’t Fall for These! The 12 Scams of Christmas

What: Mashable has posted a must-see infographic (courtesy of McAfee) for all online consumers. It details the 12 kinds of online scams you can expect to see this holiday season.

What They Say:

According to new study conducted by Harris Interactive and McAfee, about 70% of U.S. consumers plan to shop online during the holidays and one in four will shop on a mobile device. This presents a huge opportunity for cybercriminals to lure unsuspecting victims.

What We Say:We think this is a good time as any to remind us of what our mommas always tell us: if it’s too good to be true, then it probably is. Seek buyer protection whenever possible and ask for anti-fraud policies. Lastly, don’t let the incredibly low prices and premise of limited stock availability push you to shell out money. Have a merry, safe, and secured holidays!
