One of the biggest online shopping days is taking place today (Monday) and the Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt is offering some tips on how to avoid scams.
Schmitt says to avoid websites with odd or incorrect spelling of legitimate companies.

Also beware of websites promising unbelievable deals.
According to the National Retail Federation more than 174 million Americans will shop from Thanksgiving through Cyber Monday.
