Definitely, agree with this. I also use PayPal only and avoid using CC with the sites I don't frequently shop. For stuff from china I mostly shop in aliexpress, too bad aliexpress doesn't allow PayPal.One general rule I follow for ALL online purchases.
I NEVER tell the site to remember my CC information.
Data breaches are getting to be a thing anywhere and everywhere. Neighbor of mine works at the local walmart in bfe, he said they just had an issue with skimmers in the store at the instore atm's. Nothing's safe. Back in the day when a bank card got compromised the bank acted surprised like seriously, that happened? Now they're like yep, happens all the time. Sending you a new card, account's been locked temporarily and standard protocol is in place. Just another day.
yet another reason to not shop from Gearbest. Stay far, far away!
