RALEIGH -- The National Retail Foundation says 78 million people will be browsing for deals online for Cyber Monday.

However, going to the web does come with security risks that could ruin your holiday.

Computer experts say you should stay aware even after you make your purchase.

"They can follow right up to say 'there was a problem with your order' and if they send that to everyone, a large percentage of people think there's a problem with their amazon order. They give you a link to click on and tell you to log in. Watch out for that," Laurie Williams from the N.C. State department of computer science said.

Another tip is to make sure the site you're shopping on is secure which means websites that start with 'https' at the beginning of the address.
