ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- Retailers took in nearly $60 billion over the Thanksgiving weekend. But that pales in comparison to what Cyber Monday is going to bring in.
An estimated 247 million shoppers stood in line Black Friday weekend, and while only about half, 122 million, will be shopping online today, they are expected to spend nearly three times as much.
Numbers are estimated to reach $150 billion in purchases today, that's up 20 percent from last year's $125 billion.
But Cyber Monday also brings out cyber criminals.
Experts say you should search for signs of approval like Norton Secured Seal and HTTPS in the browser bar, make passwords complex, don't use public Wi-Fi networks, avoid spam.
