Shop savvy on Cyber Monday

Consumer experts with the Better Business Business Bureau have some tips for you as you surf the web for deals on Cyber Monday. 

To ensure your personal information is safe, make sure websites you visit have an "S" after the HTTP. Fake websites often mimic famous retailers, so make sure you're on a legitimate site. Also, as always, avoid deals that seem too good to be true.

"You're not going to buy a flat screen TV that is 50 inches for $100. So when you see those deals they may seem like great deals, it's probably too good to be true, so it's probably a scam," says John O'Hara, the CEO for Mississippi's Better Business Bureau.

 O'Hara also suggests not to use an open WIFI network when purchasing online. Make sure the network is closed and requires a password for access.
