Shopping Safety – Protect Yourself From Cheaters

Sep 28
2011

One of the easiest ways to buy anything you need  today is the online shopping method. It is fast and cheap, and easy as a game. There is only one big disadvantage it is still risky. Well it’s better than it was a couple of years ago. But even now you could find yourself with stolen identity or  a credit card fraud. I  advice all people who are victims of online frauds to write  rip off reports to inform the other users for incorrect websites or services. I am a keen online shopper for years and now I buy almost anything I need online. So I wrote a couple of online shopping tips which could be  pretty useful for these who just start with the online shopping.

Use Credit card instead Debit

I aware that a lot of people have this problem with the self control. But if you are able to do that this is the better option for you, cause the credit cards has special protection against identity theft and frauds. If you use a debit card online and someone access your details he can use it and in most of the cases you wouldn’t  understand.

More about the Disposable cards

If you have a shopping problem and a credit card is not a good choice for you. There is even better than that. The Disposable cards are like gift cards, you add the amount you’ll need and it’s good untill you have money in. When it’s empty you can add more or just buy another one from American Express or Visa.

The website Security is extremely important.

In the web there are a lot of shopping websites, which offers really good prices and a wide variety of products. But there is and another option the should have to be secure. One website is secure when its URL begins with HTTPS:// , and not just with HTTP:// as usual. They also have a lock icon in the right-low corner of your screen.

Shopping from Public Computer = NO

Don’t even think about that. It is the most seasy way a lot of people to get access to your billings and personal information. Do this only from home where you know the people who have access to your PC. Options like  libraries, cyber cafes, or even at work are extremely BAD idea.
