    A fairly new protection service for distance buying.

    An announcement from ShopsPromise.com

    Welcome to the National Newspaper Safe Home Ordering Protection Scheme. For your peace of mind, any advertisement showing our logo is backed by the SHOPS promise: if you place an order with the advertiser and they go bust or cease trading, the newspaper will ensure you get your money back, thanks to our scheme.




    Well folks, here is a fairly new protections scheme created by the newspapers and sites that carry adverts for online purchasing.

    Please have a look at the link, above, and keep this "watchdog" in your memories when shopping online.

    Thanks for that Paps as that site looks like it will give some good advice about buying online.

    It is always risky to pay for things at a distance and that is probably why there are a whole set of laws that are connected to what they call "distance selling".

    Here's something I found on this online: http://www.out-law.com/page-430

    Yes, and that is why we should gather as much information as we can from as many places as we can BEFORE we start to spend money online.
