Title: Black Friday Alert
Post by: Thames Valley Police on November 23, 2017, 05:35:08 PM
From Charlotte Redman (Police, Press officer, Thames Valley Police)

 We all love a bargain, but please be cautious whilst shopping online this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If an online offer looks too good to be true, it probably is. There are a number of simple tips to help spot a fake site:
 
Sense check the domain name
Are the prices too good to be true?
Never pay by bank transfer legitimate sites will accept payment via usual methods, such as bank card and PayPal
Check the Terms and Conditions, and policies are clear and fair
Read online reviews of the company and its products to check for customer satisfaction ratings (Trustpilot, Feefo)
