Buying online
If possible use online retailers and brands that you are aware of and trust. When purchasing major brands always go to the official website to find a list of authorised sellers.

When purchasing online, check the delivery, insurance, warranty and returns policies.

Make sure your computer(s) have adequate anti-virus software that will enable your computer to flag any untrustworthy sites.

Receiving e-cards
If you receive an anonymous e-card, it’s better to play it safe and delete the email as it could be infected.

Use a reputable anti-virus product on your electronic devices making sure it is regularly updated and always turned on.

If you believe your electronic device has been infected, switch it off and disconnect from the internet. This should prevent further information [potentially being stolen. You can find free advice on malware removal here: www.cyberstreetwise.com

Online auctions
Always use recommended methods of payment rather than transferring money direct to a seller.

Research the seller before you place any bids. If available you should check their feedback, be mindful that this can also be falsified.

Be cautious when buying from sellers abroad, if you are in any doubt then back out of the sale.

Donating to charity
Visit the charity’s website by ticking the address into your browser rather than clicking on a hyperlink embedded within an email.

Before donating check the website you are on is secure. The address should begin with https:// (the S stands for secure) and look for the padlock symbol.

Do not respond to requests to donate through a money transfer company such as Western Union or MoneyGram.

Social media scams
Do not have too much personal information on social media accounts which could allow your bank accounts to be compromised.

Be wary when installing add-ons to your interest browser as some can be used to extract personal & financial information from your search history.

If you click on a social media advert do the necessary checks before buying anything from the website you land on.
