RCIPS cautions online shoppers

The holiday season is on the horizon and a part of that season includes shopping and the RCIPS is warning shoppers, especially online shoppers to be cautious when parting with their cash.
Last night we told you about a couple who fell victim to an online scammer using a local website E-cay trade.
Now with the Christmas holidays drawing near many will be engaging in online shopping and Financial Crimes Unit detective Karen Harrison warns don’t be fooled by deals that are too good to be true.
“We all are shoppers, consumers, but I say anytime you decide to spend your money make sure you are seeing what you are paying for or you use safe online shopping sites you go through Paypal or you use reputable shopping sites to do your business,” Ms Harrison says.
Ms Harrison also urges caution when responding to deals sent to your email, especially those that come with hyperlinks to click on.
