Think twice about shopping online for a prom dress.

Police say scammers are selling dresses disguised as designer gowns.
Keep in mind, if the deal sounds like it's too good to be true, it probably is.

One way to spot a phony retailer online is to double check the spelling of the website. Scammers sometimes buy website domains with misspellings of a brand store to trick people into buying from their site.
