Safe Surfing: We have noticed lately more and more web sites that DO NOT show there postal address,
this is highly suspicious, so we have put together these tips and guides to safer purchasing off the Internet.
- Use Strong Passwords. We like to beat this dead horse about making sure to utilize uncrackable passwords,
but it's never more important than when banking and shopping online.
- Stay away from fishy-looking sites. You can't always tell when a website isn't legitimate, but red flags include poor design,
a strange or nonsensical Web address, and multiple pop-up windows you can't close. If you notice any of these suspicious signs, stop shopping and
close your browser windows.
- Don't click on fake e-cards. E-greetings are welcomed by most people, but security firms say fake cards can spread viruses.
It recommends that consumers delete cards that come from unfamiliar addresses.
- Avoid strangers on social media. Although many retailers use social media to drum up business, sometimes their accounts get
hacked and you're sent a dangerous message or tweet designed to look legitimate. Fraudsters also send malicious messages through social networks.
- Use common sense. If a deal online seems too good to be true, it probably is. If anything seems suspicious
(for instance, if a retailer refuses to provide details on a product or avoids answering billing questions) the best practice is to avoid it and
shop with a tried-and-true online retailer instead. Additionally, you should never feel pressured to give out information. If a retailer is
requesting something from you that makes you uncomfortable, it's probably time to take your business elsewhere.
with the Legal Terms.
- Print the terms. You should print out and date a copy of terms, conditions, warranties, item description, company information,
even confirming e-mails, and save them with your records of your purchase.
