    Been ripped off online ?

    Online Safety

    If Im ripped off who will get my money back?

    HERE is the advice page from Ask Ofcom.




    Yes, I know that many of these fixes will be common sense but you might be surprised just how many people have no clue how to go about this job.

    Best of luck to all of you, as it is a dangerous place to be on the internet these days.

    Yes, I have been ripped off a couple of times online.

    I would have loved all of that information to have been available to me at that time.

    Now I do have it I can use it any time I want to.

    Thanks Paps.

    My pleasure Zath'.

    I always find the best ways to be forewarned and forearmed and if that doesn't work I try to find the best ways to deal with such problems.

    Not been ripped-off online YET, but I am surprised that this has not happened.

    I must admit that I am VERY careful about who I connect to and where and how I spend my money.

    Maybe that's why I have not been hit yet. Evil or Very Mad

    Good for you Angie ! Very Happy

    The thing is, even the most diligent of us can get caught by the people that try to get round our natural defences. That is why we also have to use all of the weapons that are out there on our drive to protect ourselves.
