Although fraudulent online shopping experiences are not the standard for most shoppers, Computer Economics has found through our Internet Shopping Complaint Hotline that it is still a major problem on the Internet. Part of the problem is that consumers, and sometimes businesses, do not know how to protect themselves from losing money to defrauders. In cases where consumers or businesses have already been defrauded, they do not know how to begin to rectify the situation.
