Tips for Avoiding Internet Auction Fraud:  If possible, purchase items online using your credit card, because you can often dispute the charges if something goes wrong.  Be cautious when dealing with sellers outside the United States. If a problem occurs with the auction transaction, it could be much more difficult to rectify.  Ask the seller about when delivery can be expected and whether the merchandise is covered by a warranty or can be exchanged if there is a problem.  Make sure there are no unexpected costs, including whether shipping and handling is included in the auction price.  There should be no reason to give out your social security number or driver’s license number to the seller.
