Cyber security experts urge consumers to watch out for Black Friday scams

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Scammers are targeting shoppers looking for Black Friday bargains.

The thieves are using fake websites that look like the real deal. They copy big name retailers like Amazon or Walmart.

When people make an order, the thieves gain access to their banking information. There are some signs a site is fake, like reviews that don't match the product. You should also watch out for a "delivery failure" hoax.

Cyber security experts suggest using secure payment systems like Apple Pay, Venmo or PayPal.
