Black Friday is nearly here, which means it’s time for Americans everywhere to bundle up, hit the stores and fill their shopping carts with reduced-price electronics and gifts.

  • Digital double-timing
  • Faux online stores
  • Gift card gimmicks
  • Endless exclusions

Dubious delivery confirmations
Many Black Friday shoppers go online to buy their gifts, and scammers know it.
