Fact:Shopping online is the safest way to shop. Here's why.
Have you ever stop to think who are you handing over your credit card to at a; store, restaurant or even over the telephone?We all know how easy it is to make credit card purchases over the telephone. So what is there to stop "someone" from using your credit card without your permission to make a telephone purchase when you are not around? Nothing! Yet millions of people hand over their credit cards to strangers everyday. So why online shopping be different? Because in addition to being protected by the same recourse provided by Federal credit card laws, your credit card information is automatically and directly forwarded to your credit card company. There is no person (employee) in between, no different then when you "Pay at the Pump" at your local gasoline station. The attendant does not have access to your credit card number.
