Beware common traps at Christmas
Island consumers are 'all too often' targeted by fraudsters in the run-up to Christmas, according to the Office of Fair Trading.
The authority has issued a list of tips to avoid common online shopping pitfalls.
It's thought the British public lost almost £16 million to fraud last Christmas.
Fake clones of sought-after branded goods, bogus websites, and sellers stealing your identity are among the main scams to avoid.
Anyone concerned about fraud is encouraged to contact the OFT on 686500.
