Some help­ful tips • Christ­mas online shop­ping — shop only from your home com­puter. It’s much safer than shop­ping at a ter­mi­nal in an in­ter­net café or li­brary. If you plan to buy some­thing, go di­rectly to a store’s web­site by man­u­ally typ­ing its ad­dress into your web browser. Don’t click on links in an email mes­sage, even if you know who sent it.

• Ver­ify se­cure con­nec­tions. When shop­ping online, do not en­ter any fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion if you see a bro­ken-key or open pad­lock sym­bol on your In­ter­net browser. This means the transac- the key is com­plete or the pad­lock is locked, your browser is in­di­cat­ing a se­cure trans­ac­tion.

• Con­sider us­ing a com­pany act­ing as es­crow (re­li­able third party), a credit card with a low credit limit or a sin­gle use pay­ment card. Un­like se­cure or­der forms on a web site, email mes­sages are not pri- vate. Do not send confidential per­sonal or fi­nan­cial in­for­ma­tion by email.

• Avoid spam (un­so­licited mar­ket­ing email) by be­ing care­ful about dis­clos­ing your email ad­dress both on and off-line.
