Tips for a safe online shopping experience

IT was the morning of the first Monday of the month. I needed spray paint to touch up a scratch on my car. I went to three hardware shops in town, but they did not have the colour I wanted. That evening I went online to search for the item. After a few clicks, I came upon an outlet that sold spray paint and had the colour I wanted.

I clicked the “colour” and “quantity” accordingly and paid with my credit card. The amount, including the delivery charge, came to less than RM12. There was even a bonus offer of “buy one, free one”.

Limited time offer:
Just RM5 per month.
