Holiday season means a lot of shopping, especially online. Shoppers should be aware of all potential threats and scams. Staying away from unknown senders via email, and even sites that appear to be popular shopping sites is a great way to stay away from scams. Criminals use email addresses that resemble popular sites, but are misspelled. Ensuring you have a strong password for all your accounts is great protection as well. Update all firewall and anti-virus programs on all your devices.
