Regarding Online Shopping
Shoppers have come to love the ease and convenience of shopping online. New advancements in security are making the experience as safe as placing orders over the telephone. For example, it is technologically easier for a thief to steal your credit card information by either tapping your phone line or stealing the information from the carbon copy of your receipt than it is to steal similar information from our online transactions.
Additionally, federal law protects online transactions handled by credit cards -- you are protected from fraudulent charges by law. Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges.
