This shopper's online and going to a legitimate website...her holiday buying experience shouldn't be a problem. But for countless others, Cyber Monday and the other 30 days leading to Christmas could be a  nightmare.

As dawn broke on Cyber Monday..and the millions of shoppers who have no interest in shopping malls went online...ICE and Homeland Security announced the seizure of 132 sites in all...convinced that these domains collect a shopper's money and send them cheap knockoff goods, counterfeits of  the brand names the buyers think theyre getting.

El Paso agents shut down  four websites , all of them allegedly pushing phony sports jerseys.

Homeland Security Spokesperson Letecia Zamarripa tells Newschannel 9,. "What agents would do is purchase these items and have someone with the expertise authenticate them, and if the article is in fact counterfeit they will go after the people who are selling the fake pirated merchandise on the internet."

What should we look for when shopping online. What are the red flags that tell us this isnt right?

"We as consumers ned to educate ourselves online for a purchase of jewelry, something we know we're going to pay good money for...One of the websites that was seized for example was a Tiffany and company domain, and if you look at the website it doesn't look at al like like the actual, legitimate website"

Federal agents also support what shopping experts always tell us. The riskiest purchase online is with a debit card paid upfront. same as cash.  Use credit, and tell your card company later that you aren't paying for a Christmas gift that turned out to be counterfeit.

Here is a list of the websites taken down today
