Then you will get people of consumer sites saying I paid £20 for a pair of Adidas Falcon trainers and i have not received them. The site was secure, but i thought they were a bargain as they are normally £90.
Things like this are on the increase and free SSL make it easier for the scammers to make their sites look secure and genuine.
