This means buyers cannot know if the link takes you to a proper site. Buy with a credit card. Never use a debit card. The majority of debit cards require that fraudulent purchases be reported in less than a couple of days to get limit liability. Don't wire money to sellers. You cannot get your cash back when you do this. Always look at credit card statements. Put online receipts inside a secure email folder, then you can crosscheck payments. Don't supply any more info than necessary. There's no need to give out your driver's license number. They don't need your social security information either. Should a company ask for this information, it is untrustworthy. Choose lengthy passwords that you can remember. If your phone/PC to store the password, always select 'No'. Should another individual gain access to your device that person might discover your credit card info. Don't fall for gift voucher schemes. If you get an email which claims you are going to be sent a gift card but also requests your credit card information, mark it as spam. Genuine sellers will not request details such as this.
