    Buying stuff online

    I'm thinking about buying shoes from b2bman.com because they are really cheap (fake, from china) and one of my friends thinks I should go get a visa card that you put a certain amount of money on rather than just using my credit card.

    Has anyone used this site before? How can I tell if it's legit? What do you think I should do?

    My nephew bought a pair of shoes from overseas and they never shipped.

    I would be very leary.

    Call the 800 number on your card and ask them their policy but I think buying on line is the easiest thing in the world because you can pretty much refute the charges if you don't receive a service. For that reason I now put services that my business receives on a card rather than writing a check. As for on line purchases I do it all the time and sleep very well at night

    Do a google search on "b2bman scam" and you'll find that this site is listed on all the scam lists.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    I went to the site and they have a banner saying to use Western Union or MoneyGram. Two services that scammers like using. I wouldn't order from them, but that's just me.
