Christmas Shoppers Warned To Watch Out For Online Scams

Christmas shoppers are being warned to watch out for online scams, on the lead up to the festive season, according to research from Barclays.

A survey of people who have been scammed found that in more than a quarter (26%) of cases, it happened at Christmas and on average victims lost £893 (€1000), reports Breakingnews.ie

Samantha White from Barclays, said: "While families are preparing to enjoy the festive season, criminals are getting ready to pounce on anyone who lets their guard down."

The research noted that nearly two-fifths of online shoppers said they 'do not know or are not sure how to identify a secure website when shopping online'.
