Nashville, Ark. – You may already have all your holiday shopping taken care. If so,
great! If not, you might be considering making some of your purchases online. The
ease of online shopping has become super popular over the past few years. We are
so busy that the convenience of buying gifts and necessities over the Internet instead
of making a trip to the store, having to go out of town to shop, and having to stand
in long lines, is a great advantage. However, it is important that you take certain
precautions to protect your identity. To help protect your identity from being stolen
while online, follow these steps.
The holidays are right around the corner. Keep your personal information
secure when shopping online.
The information for this article was adapted from the Arkansas Attorney
General’s website, www.gotyourbackarkansas.org you might want to check it out for more information on a wide variety of topics
including current consumer complaints and alerts.
If you want more information about shopping safely online, feel free to
contact the Howard County Cooperative Extension Service at 870-845-7517 or visit our
office located on the second floor of the courthouse.
