TIP OF THE WEEK

Know who you are dealing with. Try to find a seller’s physical address (not a P. O. box) and phone number. With internet phone services and other web-based technologies, it is tough to tell where someone is calling from. Call the Better Business Bureau. Do an online search for the company name and website, and look for reviews. If people report negative experiences, you will have to decide if the offer is worth the risk. After all, a deal is good only if you get a product that actually works as promised.
