Today is known as Cyber Monday, and as thousands of Delawareans are expected to look for bargains online the Delaware Department of Technology and Information offers tips on staying cyber-safe and secure.
Additionally, Delaware Attorney General Beau Biden offered some guidelines to avoid being a victim of cyber-crime. Biden said it’s important to pay with a credit card, which provides you with consumer protections not afforded by other payment options such as debit cards. Read the fine print, Biden said: “when shopping online, it is important to read the product description and fine print very closely to ensure that you understand exactly what you are purchasing.” Also, find out the website’s shipping and return policies. Anyone suspicious of online fraud or with questions may call the Attorney General’s consumer protection unit at 1-800-220-5454 or send an e-mail to Consumer.Protection@state.de.us
