The Vernon North Okanagan RCMP is offering some online shopping advice consumers can use to keep the Grinches at bay this Holiday Season.

Online shopping can be easy and convenient and a great way to quickly cross those names off your list, states Constable Chris Terleski, Media Relations Officer for the Vernon North Okanagan RCMP. In order to get the goods, you’ll need to share some personal details such as your name, address, or credit card information. Even though there is some risk to it, there are things you can do to keep those transactions as secure and possible and safeguard your personal and financial information.

Here are some tips to help you navigate the world of online shopping safely and securely:

Pay attention to the sites you are visiting and keep an eye out for anything that seems out of the ordinary, adds Terleski. Know what to look for and what to avoid and trust your instincts.  If it seems suspicious or too good to be true, it probably is."
