Protect Yourself From Fraud This Holiday Season
Due to COVID-19, online holiday shopping is expected to be at an all-time high this year. According to Kount’s “The 2020 Hoiday eCommerce Guide”, 30 percent of Americans plan to avoid in-store shopping as much as possible. Understanding risks associated with hosting massive crowds of shoppers during a pandemic, major retailers, including Target, Best Buy, Walmart and Kohl’s, have all announced they will be closed on Thanksgiving this year. Some retailers have already started their Black Friday Sales online sales and unfortunately this gives fraudsters more opportunities and more time to take advantage of consumers.
