For this research paper I have decided to take a look into the idea of the fear of security risks in online shopping for consumers and businesses. As a consumer myself, and a young woman, I often find myself wanting to purchase things online, as many people do. Purchasing online is quicker, cheaper, and more convenient, as you can do it from anywhere. I have recently built up enough courage to purchase something online with my credit card for the first time and it got me to thinking about how many other people must be a little hesitant to do this as there is a possibility of something going wrong while doing so. As it turns out, my fears were unnecessary this time as I got my shipment with no problems.

For the people who decide to shop on the Internet, have to face many disadvantages. Many people prefer to shop in malls because they are able to see and feel the texture of the things that they want before they purchase it. Usually when purchasing a product online through the net, people do not know what they are really getting.
