All of these options are a good way to look for red flags.”BBB offers the following tips when shopping online:Pay with a credit card. Under federal law, charges made on a credit card can be disputed up to 60 days after the purchase.Keep documentation of your order. After completing the online order process, there should be a final confirmation page or an email confirmation. Print and save any receipts for future reference.Know your rights. Federal law requires that orders made by mail, phone or online be shipped by the date promised or, if no delivery time was stated, within 30 days. If the goods aren’t shipped on time, the shopper can cancel and demand a refund. There is no general three-day cancellation right, but consumers do have the right to reject merchandise if it’s defective or was misrepresented. Otherwise, it’s the business’ policies that determine if the shopper can cancel the purchase and receive a refund or credit.Do your research.
