Buyers Beware During Holiday Shopping Season

NOVEMBER 23, 2005-- For those not careful when shopping, scams and other dangers can make the holiday season anything but a happy one.

The internet has paved the way for scams and con artists to take advantage of the rush for presents and good bargains. Many sites that look legitimate try to gain people's personal information, including credit card numbers.

While shopping this holiday season, experts advise to be extra careful when heading to the internet. Law enforcement officials advise to look for a security seal when shopping online, and if there's any doubt, don't make the purchase.
