  Shop Online Safely This Holiday Season

Every year an increasing number of people do their holiday shopping on the Web to avoid long lines at the mall. However, for consumers who are not savvy about online safety, this convenience can come at a huge cost. According to the Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3)—a partnership between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)—complaints from victims of online crime may top 300,000 this year, up from about 220,000 in 2007 (Shopping Online? Protect Your Computer from Online Fraud).

To avoid having your holidays ruined by a cyber scrooge, take a few important steps.
