Shopping online is extremely popular. People enjoy getting all the same great deals – but without all the hassles. Plus, you can easily compare prices at different stores.
However, with this convenience, comes some risk. When shopping online, do it safely by protecting your computer from viruses and spyware, shop only at stores that you know and trust – or that have the BBB Online seal. This seal confirms that a business has been accredited by the Better Business Bureau and has been determined to meet the BBB’s truth in advertising standards and follow basic privacy and security practices.
Also, make sure that when you enter any personal information, you’re on a secure site with an H-T-T-P-S address, and NEVER wire money as payment for products.
