These scams could begin with someone giving out their personal information.

Black Friday is the busiest shopping day of the year. 

In a statement, Patronis said with more Floridians turning to online shopping, it makes it easier for them to become victims of fraud and scams. 

He said it’s crucial that shoppers monitor their bank accounts for suspicious activity and avoid giving out personal and financial information. 

They should also avoid unfamiliar merchants, items that are priced well below market value, and credit or coupon offers.
