We all know that hopping online is the most convenient way to shop; it completely fits our lazy nature as humans, which is cool, but online shopping can lead to some devastating effects.
- Make sure your security software, web browsers and operating system are up to date. Having a clean up to date computer is probably the best defense against Viruses/Malware/Spyware etc.
- Make sure the site is legitimate Check each site before putting your personal information into it, it is very easy for attackers to spoof (make a duplicate) of sites just to get your info.
- Be wary of emails requesting information NO COMPANY!!! is going to email you and ask your to verify you information through email, if this happens google the actual companies number and call them directly.
