Tips for Buying Safely

Here are some best practices to help ensure safe purchases on website.

Overall, use your best judgment. If something seems shady or too good to be true, it’s best not to risk it.

Credit card safety

Never give your full credit card number, social security number, or password in an email or over the phone.

If you are making a transaction in person, do not speak your credit card information aloud. Be sure to sign for the transaction and request a receipt.

Check your credit card statement regularly to track your spending and card activity.
Keep track of your credit card: who is authorised to use it, and who has access to it.

Internet/Computer safety

Change your passwords on a regular basis. The more complex a password is, the better you’re protected.
If you share your computer or device, sign out of any website accounts before letting others use it.
