Amazon Prime Day kicks off today with 48 hours of deals for prime members. 

The surge in internet traffic, however, is also likely to attract scammers looking to steal personal information. 

To avoid spoofed sites, experts advise accessing Amazon directly through their site.

Shoppers should also be wary of emails including coupons promising steep Prime Day discounts, and scams involving Amazon gift cards.
