    HOW TO AVOID BEING SCAMMED

    Martyn James, consumer expert at Resolver, has given us his top tips to keep you safe from fraudsters this Black Friday.

    Be careful with voucher codes: “You should never have to trade personal information to obtain them. And even if you did, it's simply not worth it.”

    Be sceptical: “The internet is a real wild west at the moment. The scammers are spectacularly convincing, websites look like the real thing and links are all to easy to click on. Look out for spelling errors and unusual URLs.”

    Never give away your personal information: “Your most valuable things are your passwords, personal data and payment cards. Don't ever risk them.”
