11 Tips for Safe Online Shopping

Billions of dollars will be spent online over the course of the next month, and, unfortunately, there are those that will be looking to steal some of it. Make sure you’re not a victim.

Contents

Let’s face it, there’s every reason in the world to shop online. The bargains are there. The selection is mind-boggling. The shopping is secure. Shipping is fast. Even returns are pretty easy, with the right e-tailers. Shopping has never been easier or more convenient for consumers.

But what about the bad guys who lay in wait? IID’s Third Quarter eCrime Report for 2011 indicates that use of phishing attacks (where thieves attempt to swindle you out of your sign-in credentials and even credit card info by pretending to be a real website, or even an online bank) is down, as much as eight percent since the second quarter and 11 percent since the third quarter of last year. That’s great news except the same report says sites with malware (malicious code aimed at compromising your privacy) has increased by 89 percent since the second quarter.

Stay calm. While somewhat alarming, these stats should not keep you from shopping online. You simply need some common sense and practical advice. Follow these basic guidelines and you can shop online with confidence. Here are 11 tips for staying safe online, so you can start checking off items on that holiday shopping list.

1. Use Familiar Websites
Start at a trusted site rather than shopping with a search engine. Search results can be rigged to lead you astray, especially when you drift past the first few pages of links. If you know the site, chances are it’s less likely to be a rip off. We all know Amazon.com and that it carries everything under the sun; likewise, just about every major retail outlet has an online store, from Target to Best Buy to Home Depot. Beware of misspellings or sites using a different top-level domain (.net instead of .com, for example) those are the oldest tricks in the book. Yes, the sales on these sites might look enticing, but that’s how they trick you into giving up your info.

2. Look for the Lock
Never ever, ever buy anything online using your credit card from a site that doesn’t have SSL (secure sockets layer) encryption installed at the very least. You’ll know if the site has SSL because the URL for the site will start with HTTPS:// (instead of just HTTP://). An icon of a locked padlock will appear, typically in the status bar at the bottom of your web browser, or right next to the URL in the address bar. It depends on your browser.

Never, ever give anyone your credit card over email. Ever.

3. Don’t Tell All
No online shopping store needs your social security number or your birthday to do business. However, if crooks get them, combined with your credit card number for purchases, they can do a lot of damage. The more they know, the easier it is to steal your identity. When possible, default to giving up the least amount of information.

4. Check Statements
Don’t wait for your bill to come at the end of the month. Go online regularly during the holiday season and look at electronic statements for your credit card, debit card, and checking accounts. Make sure you don’t see any fraudulent charges, even originating from sites like PayPal. (After all, there’s more than one way to get to your money.)

If you do see something wrong, pick up the phone to address the matter quickly. In the case of credit cards, pay the bill only once you know all your charges are accurate. You have 30 days to notify the bank or card issuer of problems, however; after that, you might be liable for the charges anyway.

5. Inoculate Your PC
Swindlers don’t just sit around waiting for you to give them data; sometimes they give you a little something extra to help things along. You need to protect against malware with regular updates to your anti-virus program. PCMag recommends Webroot SecureAnywhere Antivirus (4.5 stars, Editors’ Choice, $39.95 direct), which has extras to help fight ID theft, or at the very least the free Ad-Aware Free Internet Security 9.0 (4.5 stars, Editors’ Choice).

The Leading Jewellery Shop in Birmingham

We’ve spent a long time in the jewellery industry, and that has enabled us to forge relationships with suppliers throughout the world. This means we have access to a massive 70% of the polished diamonds available.

If you’re looking for a wedding ring or diamond jewellery that will last forever and be unlike anything else you’ve seen in other jewellery shops, our team will be able to source your dream jewellery from the world’s leading laboratories, including IGI, HRD and GIA.

Although we have been in the jewellery business for nearly 50 years, we know modern consumers look for more than heritage when it comes to choosing the perfect shop from which to buy their engagement ring or keepsake.

Finding the perfect diamond ring, earring or engagement ring isn’t easy, which is why our team are always on hand to offer impartial advice and listen to your reasons for purchasing jewellery. Quite often, the story behind a customer’s visit to our Jewellery Quarter store will offer the inspiration we need to provide the best recommendations.

Located in the heart of the Jewellery Quarter

Sometimes referred to as the Hockley area, Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter is a beautiful part of the city which is steeped in history. From the old jewellery manufacturing warehouses that still stand to the bustling day trade and classy nightlife, it is the most vibrant, timeless place to find the perfect piece of jewellery and relax those weary feet after a long day’s shopping.

The Jewellery Quarter has been home to Diamond Dealer Direct for decades and our store on Warstone Lane now welcomes diamond ring hunters through its doors seven days a week.

HERE S WHY OUR CUSTOMERS BUY FROM US

If you need a consultation, our team are available throughout the year to talk through your jewellery requirements and impart their considerable knowledge.

Diamond rings

Many would argue the diamond ring is the world’s most iconic piece of jewellery. Oozing romance, style and luxury, nothing quite offers the ‘Wow!’ factor more effectively than a diamond ring.

At Diamond Dealer Direct, we aim to provide every customer with their ideal diamond ring. We know how significant such a purchase is which is why we stock a huge selection of 4, 5 and 6 stone rings.

Engagement rings

One of the most important and nerve-wracking purchases anyone can make, the engagement ring is the one of the most common pieces of jewellery the Diamond Dealer Direct team in Birmingham helps its customers choose.

We have a huge array of hand-crafted designs to pick from, making the process of finding the perfect engagement ring that little bit easier. We’ll guide you through the different designs and offer advice on what may best suit that very special someone.

Eternity rings

Sometimes called ‘infinity rings’, eternity rings are used to signify ever-lasting love. It’s a sentiment we love at Diamond Dealer Direct which is why we only stock the most beautiful, timeless eternity rings.
