7. Make purchases from trusted websites
Since technology and the Internet got so advanced in the present day, thousands of cases of online fraud have increased, the number of victims expanding daily, the Federal Trade Commission received more than 2.1 million fraud reports from consumers in 2020 alone.
That is why you shouldn’t make purchases or payments on new or dubious websites. They can copy your credit card information and later use it, resulting in thousands of dollars worth of payments.
If the website’s URL address is starting with HTTPS it mean it has a secure payment method which won’t cause you any trouble. The S means it has a security certificate which implies they run trust worthy payments.
