US and European law enforcement agencies yesterday seized 132 domains that exploited Cyber Monday holiday shoppers by allegedly selling counterfeit goods.
Online shoppers are being warned to beware of a phishing scam which exploits this week's shopping frenzy by sending an email purporting to come from UPS.
Retailers rejoiced this past weekend as Black Friday sales jumped ahead of last year's numbers, but it was mostly due to a huge increase in online sales.
Everyone thinks of Black Friday as the day where hundreds of people line up outside Walmart and Best Buy, but it was the people sitting comfortably in their heated home that saw the highest amount of growth for the shopping holiday. It's a sign that leads to what could be a cataclysmic level of sales for today, the most prolific online shopping day of the year.
