Worried about identity theft and fraudulent e-commerce sites?
BuySAFE may have something for you. The company launched a free desktop application on Tuesday called buySAFE Shopping Advisor that offers ratings on U.S.-based e-commerce sites.
The integrated browser tool also offers a portal to 3,000 shopping sites where purchases are guaranteed with a bond of up to $25,000 and are protected with identity theft insurance for 30 days.
Arlington, Va.-based buySAFE partners with underwriters Liberty Mutual, Travelers, and ACE on these services.
