Web Stalkers
Chapter 1 -
The Illusion of Anonymity

Safely Purchasing Online

If the web page is encrypted, then the information transmitted should be safe from most prying eyes.  Because the work required to decipher the encryption is difficult and time-consuming, it removes most criminal motivation for routine transactions.  Realize, however, encryption only reveals the security between a person’s own computer and the server they are using.  The data for most websites and shopping sites is stored in databases.  These databases contain any personal information customers provide including addresses and credit card numbers.  Since employees have complete access to the information contained therein, the database may not be as secure at the transaction being used. 

Whether shopping online for products or services, it is critical to use common sense.  Although this section refers to shopping online, the same warnings and guidelines also apply to online credit applications. 

Note - it is extremely important to evaluate any web page before applying for credit.  Every person should make certain that it is clear with whom they are dealing when providing personal information requested for a credit application.

Comparison Shopping

When making a significant purchase, it pays to shop around.  This can be done easier online than personally driving all over town.  To make comparison-shopping even easier, there are online shopping services that act as personal assistants for the consumer.  These services use programs that search the Internet; gathering information on the desired item, at which sites that item is available, and at what cost.  Because these programs use different methods to collect information, there are often some variances in the return results.  Therefore, it is in the best interest of the consumer to try more than one.  Rather than simply going to a few e-commerce or e-tailers sites, a wider Internet search usually results in a better price.
