Hi, hope you're all doing well.

OK, I am wanting to buy a baby-grow for my new little nephew.
The only place I've seen it is from an American online shop.
(Bloomingdales.com).

However, when getting to the payment screen. I noticed that although the URL said htpps:/
It didn't have the padlock icon in the URL bar.

Clicking on more info I find that -

The site doesn't supply ownership info.
Verified by = Not verified

When I view the certificate shows the name of the online shop and it was issued by
Akami subordinate CA3
and the certificate is valid until 06/03/13

Am I being paranoid or sensible to think twice about buying something from this site ?
would you go ahead and buy something from the site if it was you ?


Im using Firefox 16.0.2
On Ubuntu 12.04


TAI for any help or advice.

Cheers Dutch_Master

I totally forgot about a Whois search.

So It looks a lot more legit after seeing that.
Thanks very much
