Is your computer protected?
Make sure your computer is equipped with updated spam filters, anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and a secure firewall. Check for and install any new security updates for the programs on your computer and its operating system.
Are you in the right frame of mind?
You can shop with speed and ease on the Internet, but you still need to shop smart. If you're tired or distracted, you may want to postpone your online shopping expedition until you can be fully "cyber-aware."
Do you trust the merchant?
To check on the seller's reputation, look for feedback comments from other customers or conduct Web searches.
Do you have all the details?
Will your online purchase be secure?
Look in the address box for the "s" in https:// and in the lower-right corner for the "lock" symbol before paying. For Internet Explorer 7, the lock symbol is directly to the right of the web address box across the top. Don't be fooled by spoofed sites that feature convincing "security" measures. If you have doubts about a site, right-click anywhere on the page and select "Properties." This will let you see the real URL (Web site address) and the dialog box will reveal if the site is "not encrypted."
Will your personal information be protected?
Are your instincts telling you to beware?
Listen to your gut. If you're dubious about a merchant; if the Web site appears to be suspicious; if the offer seems "too good to be true," trust your instincts.
Is that e-mail legitimate?
If someone e-mails you unexpectedly to ask for personal information, be very suspicious. Legitimate businesses do not send e-mails claiming problems with an order or an account to lure the "buyer" into revealing financial information. Pick up the phone and call the contact number on the Web site where you made the purchase to ask if there was a problem with your transaction.
