West Virginia's Attorney General's Office urges consumers to be safe during your shopping trips this holiday season.
"This is the busiest time of year at independent stores, malls and for online retailers, and for many people, going out shopping in the early morning hours of Black Friday is an enjoyable family tradition," Attorney General Morrisey said. "But in the midst of finding the perfect gift at a great price for a loved one, consumers should also remember to think ‘Safety First.' Just as stores and online sites will be very busy on Black Friday, Cyber Monday and throughout the holiday season, people with bad intentions will be busy too."
Here are some safety tips to consider when shopping for your holiday gifts in stores and online.
