If you are one of the millions of Americans forced to telework or shelter in place, online shopping is becoming more and more a part of your life. Even if you consider yourself an online pro, there are cyberspace predators lying in wait. From phishing websites designed to steal credit card information to websites selling goods at higher than normal prices – the risks are real!

It serves as a resource to help consumers shop smarter with online purchases and provides a shortcut to expert-tested coupon codes.
