Online shopping & money guides and advice
What are the risks of online shopping?
- Becoming a victim of fake e-commerce sites. These are sites created with the sole purpose of capturing your information which can lead to identity theft and hacking. Often these sites will offer an incredible deal that’s hard to pass up, and then disappear a few weeks later.
- Becoming a victim of a scam or fraud by unscrupulous sellers who never send the item you’ve purchased.
- Dealing with fraudulent escrow sites set up to capture your information.
- Doing business on sites that aren’t encrypted which can leave your information open to anyone.
