Today is Cyber Monday! Look out for scams!

30 November 2015

cybercop Today is Cyber Monday, which is Black Friday's little brother. Basically, this means there's a load of deals and offers being put online by retailers. Seeing as Black Friday is mostly internet-based these days, we're not sure what the point of Cyber Monday is.

However, bargains are bargains, so we'll get the best of the bunch in today's Deals of the Day at midday.

With all sales, there's always a chance that someone will try and scam you out of money in some way. If you're going through reputable outlets, you'll be fine. However, keep an eye out for things like look a bit dodgy.

A lot of people looking for a good deal end up on scam sites, and you can usually tell who they are in two ways - the first is that the price of the product is too good to be true, and the second is that the design of their website is complete dogshit.

Cyber Monday might not seem like a big deal to some, but last year, £720 million was spent in the UK, and it is thought that this year, that figure is going to be higher. Again, that's not touching the figures from Friday, where it seems over a billion quid was spent.

Anyway, stay vigilant.
