I have found an article about how hackers take advantage on days like “Black Friday” , “Cyber Monday” and of course Christmas.
A lot of offers pop up during these days for buying stuff insanely cheaply e.g. iPad for $300 is one of them.

How to sort out which ones are fake?
Answer is easy according to nackedsecurity.sophos.com: “Do NOT trust any of them” if you receive any emails with to good to be true offers don’t click any links.

In my opinion this is not very clever way to do scamming. And people keep falling for these things, but there’s no patch for human stupidity.
