PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The holiday shopping season will be in full swing on Black Friday and, in some cases, even Thursday night after dinner! And authorities warn the criminals will be out in force.
They want shoppers to be safe and smart at the store and on your computer.
Delaware County’s district attorney says it’s a good idea to create new and strong online passwords for your shopping, email, and bank accounts.
Also, avoid carrying large sums of cash.
Authorities also suggest you contact the credit reporting agencies to put a fraud alert on your account.
