Chapter 1 -
The Illusion of Anonymity

Safely Purchasing Online

These guidelines can be summarized to the Latin phrase “caveat emptor” or “let the buyer beware.”  The single most important way to stay safe while dealing with vendors and other online sellers is to use common sense.  A person’s gut feeling is one of their best safety devices.  If a person comes across a deal that sounds too good to be true, it probably is.  Although this is not always the case, the interested party should proceed with caution.

For example, a laptop computer listed for $100 might be a scam, or it is possible that the person selling it recently purchased a new one and just wants to get rid of the old one.  Most online shopping forums have seller ratings based on previous purchaser feedback.  Review the information closely.  A brand new seller with an unbelievable deal should call for more caution and the use of an escrow service.  If the seller has been active for several years with little to no negative feedback, and after contacting them they appear legitimate; one might decide to proceed with the purchase. 

In the course of reading e-mail or browsing the web, a person is likely to see product advertisements that include links to websites where the product may be purchased.  If a shopper wishes to learn more about the product or offer, it is advisable to open a second browser and use the search engine to go directly to the webpage of the item, rather than link to the page from the advertisement itself, because some links are fraudulent.  While appearing to take the shopper to a trusted location, E-Bay for example, they may in fact link to a look-a-like web page where scammers ply their trade.
