With holiday shopping season in high gear, shopping and delivery scams are also on the rise.

We’ve told you about phishing scams before, and even scams that take advantage of your misspellings or fat-finger moments—but this one? It may just take the cake in terms of sneakiness.

It’s called typosquatting—creating a website that has a domain name that is super similar to a legitimate, popular website, but takes advantage of common misspellings or accidental keystrokes.These fake sites can look so real, they can trick you into revealing your login or payment credentials, or even place backdoors into your computer system or install ransomware without your knowledge.
