Protect your identity on Cyber Monday

The state’s Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection has advice for cybershoppers on this, the busiest cybershopping day of the year:

MADISON – Today is known as “Cyber Monday” in the world of retail. Coined in 2005, the marketing term reflects an increase in computer-based sales on the Monday after Thanksgiving. Online shopping has given new meaning to convenience and choice. However, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection reminds consumers to take the necessary precautions when doing business in cyberspace.

Some of the things to keep in mind:

  • Know who you are dealing with.
  • Know exactly what you are buying.
  • Know what it will cost.
  • Pay by credit or charge card.
  • Check out the terms of the deal.
  • Print and save records of your online transactions.

DATCP has more details on those points available on their website, and more information about identity theft prevention here.
