    Good post, jasonco12.
    It proves what I noticed with people I know. More and more are buying online.
    I just talked to someone who was still afraid about using his credit card online and I explained to him a few things about secure pages and places to trust. Then two days later he did buy something online and said he would do a lot more of it

    What are everyone's typical trend for end of summer to Christmas? I see a little slower for August but am excited about building up to Christmas. Anyone else see Sales in August lower than July?

    Then 3 days later they were billed $12,000 for 100 harddisks shipped to Nigeria My brother in Germany got a new credit card, he used it once in a taxi. THe next month he got a $1,500 bill, the card was used in a shop in New Zealand. He was refunded, but beware, fraud is rampant.
