Risky Online Shopping

Risky Online Shopping

Duane Wicker, Staff Writer

Everyone loves to get the best deals on things like clothes, jewelry, shoes etc. Some of the best deals are found online. Online shopping is so appealing because you can buy things online that are sold out in stores and get items that aren’t available to you locally. Online shopping is great but sometimes websites and retailers can be deceiving, and occasionally some things are really too good to be true.

Wish.com is one of the many websites where you can buy very exclusive products at very low prices. There are even some products that you can get for free, but very often what you ordered isn’t what you get. From personal experience I ordered three hats from the Wish app and two of those hats were not the same product that I saw in the picture. Each item was shipped separately and they each took about a month to arrive. One of the hats that I ordered was actually what I expected so it would be wrong to say that this website can’t always be trusted. When using websites like Wish and many other online shopping websites it is very helpful to read the comments and reviews from other people who purchased the item. Also you should watch out for scammers when you use your credit or debit card. Online websites that also have actual physical retail stores are more reliable.
