Get ripped off while shopping

The Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania recently released a study entitled Open to Exploitation: American Shoppers Online and Offline which you may want to take a look at.

The report lead by Joseph Turow, Ph.D. contains a plethora of data taken from polls on issues such as the percentage of folks who have no idea what a phishing site looks like, as well as a few shocking factoids like the fact that charities can sell your personal information, even without your permission.

Well worth your time. You can pick up the report here.
