Discontinuednamebrandyarn.com....secure website? >>
I don't see anything on the site, including the checkout page that says that it is secure. I'm very leery about putting financial info on a site that doesn't have more protection.

Anyone?

i believe that it is secure, but remember, if there is a phone number, call them and start interrogating.

I've ordered from the "yarn girls" several times and never had any 'puter problems that I know of. The only thing that holds me back is there high s/h charges.

Secure websites indicate that they are, usually very clearly on the checkout page.
What makes you believe that it is secure?

It is a secured checkout. When in the cart page, the address begins with HTTPS:\\ that extra S stands for Secure. Also at the bottom of your screen there should be a padlock icon that when you hover over it tells you the site has 128-bit encryption. Of course, if you are still unsure, it is always best to go with your gut.

Well, there is no padlock icon, but I had forgotten about the https deal. Thanks!

I can't seem to get to the site-- I keep getting a no-domain response. Is it just me?. . .
