Cyber Monday: Protecting your financial information

Nov 30, 2015 9:23 AM by News Team

Experts expect Americans to spend $3 billion in online shopping Monday, about 12% more than in 2014.

Black Friday is typically the unofficial start to the holiday shopping season, but experts report online shopping took a portion of that.

The National Retail Federation found more people shopped online than in stores over the long weekend.

Before you log on for deals, experts have some advice to keep your financial information safe:

  • Use a separate credit card for online shopping, which will help you safeguard your credit line and bank accounts.
  • Pay attention to statements after purchases for any unusual micro charges.
