Online shopping

Better safe than sorry

Online shopping is becoming more and more popular and convenient - but there are issues to consider before you decide to buy goods and services over the internet. While the vast majority of virtual transactions are safe and secure, fake shopping sites are not unknown.

Debit and credit card security

Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode give you an extra layer of security when you use your debit or credit card online.

Handy hints

  • Enter your card details on secure websites only - these are identified by a padlock or key symbol and a site address that changes from 'http' to 'https'
  • Be careful about providing your account and card details to third parties. If you are at all unsure about buying something from any third party, do not proceed
  • Never disclose your card PIN to any online seller
  • Poor grammar or spelling on an email or website may indicate a scam is being attempted
  • Remember - there is no guarantee that you will receive any item as displayed or described in an advertisement or from public auction sites
