I was inspired by dougie_monty who, in another thread, mentioned his lack of enthusiasm for ordering anything online with a credit card.
Actually, his exact words were, “I’ll be damned if I’ll divulge my credit card numbers online…”
I don’t see the problem with this. I mean, how is ordering online any more likely to get tyou screwed than giving the number out on the phone, or even just USING IT in person? I mean, how do you know that waitress who just took your card isn’t keeping your info for a future mail order purchase sent to her anonymous PO Box?
I have ordered many things online with my credit card, from CDs to books to computer accessories. Never had a problem thus far.
And even if I had a problem, all you are legally held accountable for in the event of fraud is $50.
Why is dougie_monty and others like him so scared of this?
