NYS Attorney General Officers Online Shopping Safety Advice

Local News

New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman offered tips to help protect you on Cyber Monday.

Schneiderman says “some deals are too good to be true.”

Some tips include:

  • Beware of misleading bargains and added fees. The “sale” price may have been marked up before it was marked down.
  • Compare warranty terms. Not all are the same.
  • Know the terms of a layaway plan. Check return and refund policies.
  • Use your gift card as soon as possible.
  • Shop only on secure Internet connections, look for the https in the URL.
  • Protect yourself by using credit or debit cards. Credit cards generally offer better purchase protection and fraud dispute resolution than other methods of payment.
  • Read the fine print.
