before you purchase a product on the Internet check with the better business bureau to see if they are legitimate. And If they are not a member of the better business bureau then ask them why they are not. if you have paypal you can get protection from businesses that try to scam you. you can use paypal through your regular credit card and transfer funds to your paypal account. don't send anyone cash or checks. if they ask for cash or checks only do not buy from them off the internet. Any business that is serious will be a member of the better business bureau and they will also except paypal. or a credit card if it is protected. check with your credit card company first to see if your account is protected. check out www.paypal.com
