Houston Area Real Estate & Relocation: November 2010

Online Shopping Safety Tips

 

 

I just heard a couple of online shopping safety tips on the radio.  ProbablyPresents common knowledge, but maybe this will be a reminder for some:

In the address bar, before making a purchase, be sure you see https:// not just http//  -- the "s"  indicates it is a safe website, OR the little lock also indicates it is a safe website.

Another recommendation is to actually CALL the company you are ordering from to make sure they are a legitimate business, especially if you have never heard of them.

I do plan to do some online shopping this year,  so if you know of other tips, I would love to know about them.
