Tis the Season for Online Shopping

Tis the Season for Online Shopping

What is the easiest way to avoid lines this holiday season?  Shop online!  It’s fast, easy and convenient; however it has bred countless scams that rip off consumers.  Cyber crooks perpetuate their scams quickly and without a paper trail.  BBB offers the following tips to make online shopping safer.

  • Be sure you can find an address for a company before placing an order online
  • Never give out credit card information if you aren’t certain the company is legitimate
  • Only place orders on secure websites
  • Never wire money
  • And finally, pay with credit cards (*remember: debit cards are not credit cards and do not have the same protections)

You BBB wishes you happy and safe online shopping this season.
