Protect Yourself When Shopping Online
It’s never been easier to buy what you want, when you want it, especially since the majority of retailers now have an online shopping site and you can browse their stores without ever stepping foot in them. And with the countless number of online auction sites available, there is the added thrill of bidding on items you want and getting them at the lowest possible price. Before you click “confirm” on a purchase or bid, be aware of whom you’re dealing with-whether it’s a reputable retailer or an unknown seller halfway around the world-and do everything that you can to protect yourself online.
