Online Holiday Shoppers Beware!

Our Southcreek neighbor – Business Data Services – offers their Top 5 safety tips for safer online shopping:

  1. When submitting information online, make sure there is a “lock” icon on the browser’s status bar (and that it is “locked”).
  2. Keep your operating system, anti-virus, anti-spyware and firewall software up to date. And, use anti-virus and/or firewalls on every computer you own/use.
  3. Use credit cards rather than debit cards. And, try to make all of your online transactions with one credit card, if you have more than one.
  4. Keep a record of what you pay for and always check your online purchases off against your statement[s].
  5. Always check the privacy policy of any Web site that requests personal details. If the Web site is requesting this type of information and does not have a privacy policy, it is not wise to submit your information.
