Online shoppers warned as scammers look set to cash in on Christmas shopping bonanza

Online shoppers are being issued with more warnings about an increase in cybercrime activity in the run-up to Christmas. Security firm McAfee has gone so far as to say that it could result in a perfect storm of cybercrime as more of us make digital purchases without taking adequate fraud prevention measures.

According to McAfee’s 2020 Festive Season: State of Today’s e-Shopper survey nearly 40% of British consumers will be making more of their purchases online. With 50% of us increasing the amount of shopping we do online generally there’s also concern that not enough of us are changing our habits to reduce the risk of being a victim of cybercrime.
