How often do you buy anything online? Do you feel secure to buy anything online where you need to send you credit card number? Have you ever been cheated while buying anything online? Do the goods that you buy always reach you in time? I have bought only one watch that too a few years back. That time, i had no problems and the product reached me safely. What experience do you have?

Yes I feel secure to purchase online from well known websites/brands. So far, my experience has been quite a good one. Even my friends are into online buying. Well, she has big feet and its very difficult to buy shoes in Asia. Hence, she needs to purchase from USA. If I am staying in the UK or US, I would really like online shopping. Why? Because of the free deliveries and the ease and convenience.

To this day, I've dealt only with established, reputable vendors. I have yet to perform any transactions with an eBay auctioneer, or anyone like that. My choirmaster does, but she knows how to deal with fraudsters better than I do. My expertise is in computers and Internet security. Not only do I have a NIPS firewall to protect against known malicious protocols, but I even keep Windows' core locked so that brand-new tricks still can't do anything to my system. And finally, just because I'm paranoid, I use a GUI keyboard to enter credit card numbers. ;)

Sometimes I do depending on what the item is. I feel secure about it. I never got cheated and the stuff that I get usually arrives right away. I always get the right items so that is never a problem there. I've pre-ordered stuff and it came when it was released. Usually that takes the longest but that's ok. I just worry about it coming in safely.

I've bought a few things online, and I don't worry about being scammed. But I guess it depends on what sites you buy from. If you're talking about an online store that's well known or especially the online store of a retailer such as Walmart or Best Buy, then I wouldn't worry about it, and even on eBay, where you can never be too sure who you're buying from, there are things like feedback that help you determine their trustworthiness. On eBay they don't even get your credit card number anyway, only Paypal has it, and acts as the mediator between you and the other seller, so it's pretty safe.

I buy really rarelily online. Its not that i am afraid to get scammed or anything, but i just dont see why should i shop online when i don't have anything to buy. If i buy something its computer games or from different countries some stuff which is not avaible here in Finland. No, i don't use creditcard and i don't know if in other countries there is this system that the company sends the product to mail and then you can go get it, but when you go to mail you need to give the amount of money to receive the package.. Pretty scam free to the customer dont you think? Yes the goods i buy rarely always reach me in time. Anyway do not worry being scammed from sites which are even little reliable. And you cant be scammed if you use that post method i told you about before. Have fun shopping online :)
