Internet shopping gets bigger all the time. This year online holiday retail sales are expected to hit $32 billion.
The Better Business Bureau has these tips to keep your online shopping safe:Make sure you have updated anti-spam, anti-virus, and anti-spyware software.
Check with the BBB about the retailer's marketplace record.
Get the seller's info and product or service details like shipping charges, delivery time, and return policy.
Right-click on the site and select "properties" to see the seller's real web site address.
If the merchant or web site appears suspicious, trust your instincts.
And remember, legitimate businesses do not send e-mails asking for your financial information.
