I'm pretty sure you at least some of your online purchases. It is no secret that online retailers offer deals. But at the moment, there is always a potential risk of getting your money stolen by cunning dealers, scammers and spammers.

If you protect yourself against online scams, then read on! Here are five simple tips to help you shop online safely.

1. Use a secure PC

No matter how careful you are, there is no guarantee that your computer is not infected. Anyone who surfs the Internet, visiting websites, and social software downloads simply can not be 100% sure that their computer malware and spyware. So before you buy, you check if your computer has an overall protection and anti-virus and run an anti-spyware. Use get and set the software up to date.

I recommend using Auslogics Antivirus - it not only protects against viruses, spyware and other threats, but it also has a feature called Privacy Control. This feature is designed to prevent hackers from stealing your personal information so that shopping online is safer. Auslogics Antivirus has an unlimited 30 day free trial; you will be fully protected for the next month.

If you can, avoid shopping from public computers or a computer for your kids play games online and chat with their friends to use. These PCs are likely to be infested with spyware so that your personal data is stolen, no matter how careful you are.

2. Always shop from trusted sites

there are a variety of websites, amazing bargains. In fact, some of them are so amazing they are simply not true! Well, mostly, they do not - many sites like this, as a reseller. All they want is to steal your money. Remember, no one will give you a car for the price of a hamburger. I would therefore strongly advise you not to use the shopping search engine. Or if you do, check and double-check the website before entering any payment details.

Pay attention to:

* Security Seals
* Shipping Return and refunds
* Use secure connection (https: / /) when the site asks you to specify a payment method

you can also research activities based on sites like RipoffReport.

Never, never bought anything on e-mails from unknown senders and never advertised click on any links in these e-mails. These emails are almost always a scam and links will take you to sites that put viruses on your system. And never shop on websites that ask you to send payment instructions or payment.

3. Spam Control

if you are getting the spam from online retailers are worried, you can either use a Separate e-mail for online purchases, or create aliases. Here's how it was done using Gmail.

For example, your address is and you are shopping at a website called So, when giving them your email address, type it as That way all future communication from that shop will be addressed to

So, if they or someone in their network, you try to mail, you know them and they can easily block.

4. Pay with a credit card

Most of you have several credit cards - a credit, not debit. Both can be used for shopping online, but it is safer to use a credit card. Experts say that credit cards give you less trouble if it should be your bank; unauthorized charges appear later on a monthly statement. Additionally you do not want to pay interest on overdrafts of your debit card, is not it?

5. Consider alternative methods of payment

did you know that you do not use a credit card or debit card to make purchases online? There are many other ways to get the goods you've bought - prepaid credit cards, gift cards and certificates, and can sometimes be paid in cash upon delivery to pay. There are also sites like you provide online without having to enter details of your credit card as you shop. Besides Article Research, online retailers, even encourages a service such as by offering free shipping and an option to defer payment of up to 6 months of use.
