I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed inrepparttar 143569 results of my search. While there was plenty of good advice available there were two things I found troublesome. The first was while most sites highly recommended using credit cards exclusively for online purchases; only one site stressedrepparttar 143570 danger of using debit cards. A debit card is a direct link into your checking or savings account. Unlike a credit card, where a fraudulent charge can be disputed and repparttar 143571 issuer will place a hold onrepparttar 143572 debt, once you reachrepparttar 143573 point of disputing a debit card transaction,repparttar 143574 money is already gone.
