    How safe is Amazon.com ??
    I want to get something off there but I don't know whether it will be safe or not.3

    Safe as in: I won't lose money, I won't get a hacked credit card.

    Definitely safe. If it was any more safe you would need to contact one of the staff offline to get an MD5 code to input on a secure connection to a super strong firewalled server to get as much as the favicon.

    No, you won't, and transmission of payment details is ssl encrypted so nobody can intercept your data. However, of course as with all credit cards it's your obligation to control transactions.

    its actually the biggest scam on the internet, just no one has found out yet.


    they are going to rob everyone who has used amazon at a certain point in time.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    It's safe, as long as you're buying something that actually ships from Amazon.com, a lot of resellers use Amazon to sell their things.
