Holiday shopping mania seems to be in full swing already this year, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday previews and preseason deals popping up in inboxes and social feeds everywhere. And it’s not just happening in the US, despite the fact that these shopping specials are triggered by the Thanksgiving holiday. In the UK, retailers are already offering heavy discounts — some as high as 25% to 30% — which normally doesn’t happen until Black Friday and beyond. Though the offers in the UK are likely in response to rising inflation, a dip in annual sales figures, and a hike in interest rates, the aggressive sales by legitimate retailers on both sides of the pond present a golden opportunity for cybercriminals — an environment in which online shoppers are seeking (and expecting) better-than-average deals.
