Computers & Telemarketing

Computer & Internet Security

If you store financial records on your computer, use passwords and install an electronic firewall to keep burglars and Internet hackers from accessing your computer. Do not give your credit card number or other financial information over the Internet unless you are certain you have a secure server connection. These usually include an "s" after the "http" web address and an icon of a "closed lock" or "key" at the bottom of the screen. 

Save the transaction number or confirmation number provided to you by the business and make a note of the date/time of the transaction and what you ordered. Review the privacy policy of any online companies you deal with and request that they not share your financial information.
