This is especially important for those who operate article, e-book and ezine sites. I personally have visited many of these sites and was shocked to find they had no categories for consumer protection or Internet safety. Visitors look to these sites in order to find detailed information they need to make wise buying decisions. While consumer advocates CAN still post their information, they are forced to place it in such categories as “nonfiction” and “general”. The poor consumer is then forced to dig for or accidentally trip over information in order to find it.
Here are three sites that do fight war on unethical business practices and provide easy to find consumer protection and Internet safety education information. In my opinion, they deserve your business.

The International Council of Online Professionals (iCop™) http://www.i-cop.org/directory/index.htm
eBooks N' Bytes http://www.ebooksnbytes.com/ebooks.shtml
So by simply adding a consumer protection and Internet safety information (or a link to a consumer advocacy site) in an easy-to-find place, you can help fight war on unethical business practices. By doing so you increase your own consumer confidence and sales.
Either we stand up and fight for our consumers, educate them and enlist their help in war against unethical business practices, or continue to loose sales because consumers are afraid to buy online. The decision is yours.
