Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving, is the heaviest online shopping day of the year. The allure of low prices and convenience generates millions for retailers, and exceptional deals for consumers. Cyber Monday, however, is not without risk.

With large sums involved, the criminal element is waiting to take your money. Some will use deceptive ads to infect your computer, stealing your passwords and personal information. Victims sometimes even have to pay for charges that thieves made on their stolen credit cards.

King David complained in Psalm 69:4, “Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.”

If you’re surfing the net Cyber Monday, surf cautiously.
