SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Black Friday shopping broke records over the weekend, and now Cyber Monday is upon us. 

This year's Cyber Monday is expected to be the biggest online shopping day of the year. According to research firm ComScore, Americans are expected to spend $1.5 billion. That is up from last year. 

This comes as retailer's ramp up deals to get shoppers to click on their websites. Cyber Monday is the day online retailers have been holding their post-Thanksgiving sales since 2005. Many people have online access at home, not to mention mobile devices that let them shop anywhere, so some sites started their deals early. 

If you weren't one of the 247 million shoppers that the National Retail Federation says hit the stores over the weekend, there's still time to get bargains.

One data tracking firm says it with expected sales on Monday to draw in around $1.5 billion, it's also a big draw for crooks, according to an online security expert.
