These days there's an alternative to going to the shop.

The Internet.

Shopping online.

You don't get to go to a shop any more. And you don't get to try things on.

You don't get to hand over your money directly - and you don't get to walk away with the things you've bought. You have to wait - and you have to trust people a bit more ...

Which is a worry: there's a risk that people you can't see will take your money, your credit card details, and not send you the things you thought you'd bought. So you've got to be careful.

Meanwhile the good guys, the honest guys, have to spend a lot of time and effort proving that they can be trusted - while the bad guys are also doing whatever they can to make you trust them.

It's all very tricky, so be careful and don't just rush in ....
