Is it safe to buy off an internet store through a proxy?

Question by James F: Is it safe to buy off an internet store through a proxy?

Recently I found a website that bases it prices on your location. They give free delivery so prices are tinkered to cover costs.

I used a proxy to pretend I’m from the UK and found the prices up to 25% cheaper. But is it safe to complete the transaction by inserting a) my email address and b) my 3 digit CVV number?

My visa card details are already saved on the site, but to access them I have to insert my password too.

Best answer:

No. You’ll go to jail for 15 years for that if I’m correct.

    If you’re not from the UK, how will you get around the delivery address issue? When the vendor discovers a non-UK delivery address, he will not ship until he has notified you of extra charges and you have paid the requested amount

    No, it’s not safe. The person running the proxy could intercept your credit card details.

    1st: is the proxy safe?
    2nd: If you’re not in UK, they will find out when they deliver it.

    I’m not recommend you use proxy to do your transaction,It is not safe!

    You can use proxy to access any blocked sites but it is not safe for this purpose.
