These articles focus on safety of you and your valuables, in particular, coins.
The first two articles focus on how you can be safer with your web experience of buying or selling coins on the internet. The internet offers a wealth of information and opportunity, but monetary transactions should be approached with caution.
These articles do not identify all of the challenges, but the intention is to alert you to potential issues and help you become more aware of the dangers on the internet.
Next, there is a series of articles discussing how to visit a coin show with you and your valuables' safety in mind. Again, they focus on the main points that you should remember to increase your safety.
These articles are not meant to make you paranoid; however in tough times, it pays to be cautious and to be alert for potential unsafe actions, places and people.
We prefer our show attendees - dealers and public - to enjoy their experience and to be safe and unharmed.
