The issue of finding totally free online dating and personals ads sites have been a difficult task since most users find it difficult to determine which sites are actually free and which are not.

Many online websites offer potential members a 100% free to join membership without detailingrepparttar 141237 extent ofrepparttar 141238 certain membership offered. The theory here is sometimes clear inrepparttar 141239 label free to join only means making you a member with a profile.

Inrepparttar 141241 alternative, you have those offering a free full membership or trial membership.

There once was a time whenrepparttar only option people had when shopping was to either call in or snail mail in a catalog order form or to jump inrepparttar 140706 family car, fight through traffic, and wait in long checkout lines to completerepparttar 140707 purchase.

Well, nowadays there’s still a few major mail order catalogs floating around and we all still visit our local retail outlets, but time has also introducedrepparttar 140708 internet as one of our options to shop fromrepparttar 140709 comforts of home.

The internet has made shopping at home a breeze and along with it has unfortunately broughtrepparttar 140710 so called ”Evil Doers” who I believe have such little happiness in their own lives that they must leech pleasure fromrepparttar 140711 hardworking and innocent individuals of our wonderful and surrounding nations.

And yes, I am speaking ofrepparttar 140712 ever growing problem known as Identity and Credit Card Theft.

As an online and offline consumer it is in my best interest to protect myself while atrepparttar 140713 same time wanting to help others protect themselves as well.

Below is a short yet thorough list of ways that you can follow to help yourself stay safe and be a happy consumer and keep “Evil Doers” at bay.

1) Always shred sensitive materials such as bank statements before throwing them away inrepparttar 140714 regular trash. Just becauserepparttar 140715 paper documents are inrepparttar 140716 garbage doesn’t mean they are safe from peeping eyes.

2) Contact your local bank or credit card provider to request a card with a low limit. This can make you feel more at ease about shopping at those not so familiar places and can reducerepparttar 140717 damages caused by such an ill intended individual if they get hold of your number.

Also never give outrepparttar 140718 3-letter Card Identification Number found onrepparttar 140719 back ofrepparttar 140720 credit card unless you absolutely trustrepparttar 140721 merchant you are dealing with.

3) NEVER give out your social security card number for any reason! If capable you are best to obtain a tax I.D. number fromrepparttar 140722 Internal Revenue Service or local tax agency.

If any “Evil Doer” gets hold of your personal information such as home address, birth date, and Social Security Number you are at great risk of being victimized.

4) Only purchase items online through secure order pages which is typically indicated by a small, yellow, “Padlock” image usually located somewhere nearrepparttar 140723 bottom of your internet browsers window.
