Stay Safe When Buying Online This Year

It’s Green Monday. The second Monday in December is one of the busiest online shopping days of the year. Will you be making online purchases today? If so, stay safe. Many people chose to buy holiday gifts online because of the convenience, but one thing everyone can agree on is that identity theft is a quick way to ruin the holiday spirit. Luckily, the financial experts at the Pennsylvania Institute of Certified Public Accountants (PICPA) have some tips about when to be skeptical, what type of security checks to look for, and how to pay for your purchases to ensure your personal information stays out of nefarious hands this year.
