Without it, You are at a much higher risk of Identity Theft & Credit Card Fraud. Please read more on this very important topic
"Copy Cat" Websites - WHO'S LOOKING AT YOUR CREDIT CARD?
Fuel oil comparison websites are sprouting up more and more these days. Some of them are even faxing and e-mailing consumer credit information to selected oil dealers.This opens up a whole new relm of possible identity theft. When it comes to safe, online ordering, CODFUEL.com is the ONLY website that does not give out credit card numbers to ANYONE; not even the dealer delivering Your oil.
What about Ordering a Cash Oil Delivery Online?
Make sure You Know Who is Delivering Your Oil BEFORE you place any order, EVEN if You are Paying in CASH
Even if you are paying CASH on other "Copy Cat" Websites, you MUST be careful. Codfuel.com is the ONLY Website that DISCLOSES the Actual Fuel Oil Company that will deliver Your oil. You should NOT order a CASH delivery from a Website without knowing how many people are accessing this information and knowing that you are at home with a large amount of cash on hand. Without knowing upfront who is making your delivery, your CASH order could be going out for bid to many people or even 3rd party trucking Companies.
CODFUEL.com is the ORIGINAL PIONEER of heating oil price comparison websites. CODFUEL.com gives consumers the advantage of shopping online and the ability to select the oil dealer of their choice for delivery, yet not exposing their credit card information to employees, delivery drivers, telephone operators or anyone who can come in contact with this information.
CODFUEL.com makes ordering home heating oil fast, easy, convenient and credit card safe! Remember, identity theft is not totally avoided because you are ordering from a website that has a security seal. This does help a great deal and you should always look for the security seal before ordering, but limiting the additional exposure of the offline process after your order should be a big concern.
Please Note: Most oil dealers are reputable people and operate with good business practices. Unfortunately, any time credit card numbers become available to others, it can be considered risky. CODFUEL.com is an automated system on a secure, PCI compliant server so Your credit card is NOT handled by any employees.
Do The Math
Credit card fraud and identity theft are amongst the biggest fears of online shoppers. Now that "copycat" websites and local fuel oil dealers are making it easier for their customers to order home heating oil online with credit cards, you may be at a high risk of exposure.
For example, if you order heating oil on an as needed basis (C.O.D) and you order by credit card both online and off, your card is exposed to each individual dealer and their employees. In some cases, the delivery driver has access to consumer credit card information too. If you order oil from five (5) different oil companies in one year and they each have five (5) employees, your credit card has the potential of being exposed to 25 separate individuals in that year alone. If it's NOT CODFUEL.com, you increase your risk. With ten years of service and tens of thousands of oil deliveries, why choose anything else? Make sure you see the CODFUEL.com Logo before ordering on-line.
CODFUEL.com's automated system eliminates the potential of individuals viewing your credit card information and processes your order on a secure server directly with the credit card merchant's bank.
