2018 – 10/15 – 3 ways to protect yourself from fraud when shopping online
Shopping online in the comfort of your home can lull you into a false sense of security. To protect yourself from falling prey to fraudulent retail sites and crooked marketplace sellers, review any ratings or customer feedback provided. Also plug the name of the seller into a search engine to look for negative information such as disgruntled customers or even legal action. Finally, because credit card companies allow customers to dispute fraudulent purchases, always use this form of payment. Be suspicious of any seller that asks you not to use a credit card.
