well even i haev had this doubt.well i have got advises not to give my credit card number if asked in internet.especially i have heard that we may get emails from a person that we have got gift cash and will be asked of our credit card numbers..these people do it and ultimately cheat the concerned person.

It's safe only on verified and secured sites. These ones have an "s" in the begining line "HTTPS". They have encrypted transactions. And beware, never give anybody your PIN code !!!

Watch out and look if the site is official not like a beginner site . search if you can find out if it has much customers etc and i would trust it

So at least you've learned your lesson. Be skeptical next time
