Avoid Online Shopping Rip-Offs


Online shoppers, be careful! You could fall victim to serious
scams unless you know how to distinguish a legitimate site from a rip-off.

Reality is that we have no idea who's on the other side of the
transaction when you make a purchase online, There is a pretty good comfort
level with big online retailers, but the same can't be said for a no-name
website that has an amazing deal that might be a little too good to be true.

There is no one simple thing you can do to guarantee an online
website is real. But using a few strategies may help you separate safe sites
from questionable ones:

  • Check for a security certificate. Before typing in any
    confidential information or account numbers, make sure the link changes from
    http:// to https://. That "s" at the end does not guarantee trust, but it does
    mean the retailer has filed for a security certificate, paid a fee, and given
    at least some verified contact information.
  • Find a real person. Call the contact phone number, but if all you
    get is a recording don't count on getting reimbursement if a product fails.
  • Look for broken links and missing images. Poor website design is a
    warning sign; an even bigger danger now is a thief who knows you're looking for
    errors and creates an error-free illegitimate site.
  • Use user reviews-with caution. Not all reviews are accurate, and some reviewers have a financial interest in an
    item or a competing item. Find sources with many reviews, and look for patterns
    where reviewers agree on what they like and don't like.Compare user reviews with those from the Better Business Bureau http://bbb.organd Consumer Reports. http://www.consumerrports.org
  • Safeguard your computer o other divices. Don't shop online unless
    your operating system, browser, and security software are up to date. If your
    smartphone doesn't have security software, don't use it to shop online until
    it's protected.
