(KCEN) -- One week from today online shoppers will head to the Internet for Cyber Monday.
But beware of scammers who want to treat themselves to your hard earned money.
Be careful what you search for. Adding words like "cheap" or "discount" to your search more than doubles your chances of landing on a site offering counterfeit items.
Also be wary of highly-discounted products.
If the deal seems to good to be true, it probably is.
Run a search for the company plus the word scam and see what pops up to keep from becoming a victim of online scamming.
