Attorney General offers online shopping tips


RALEIGH, NC (AP) - North Carolina's attorney general says shoppers need to be vigilant whether they are buying gifts in the store or online.

Roy Cooper is offering tips for those who will do holiday shopping for the online-focused Cyber Monday. He suggests that shoppers use sites they know and trust, read return policies, ensure that sites accepting payment information are secure and to print out records of online orders.

Cooper also says shoppers should do their own price comparisons instead of taking the word of sites that claim to have the lowest. And he says consumers should be on the lookout for counterfeit or knockoff products that don't provide full quality.
