    This sure doesn't read like this Utah division are consumer advocates at all, just another ponzi scheme to put people into excessive debt.

    Rule #1- Do not read or comply with their rule number one. The other 9 warnings are irrelevant and common sense to all purchases.

    (Real)Rule #1- don't use debit or credit cards or ATM transfers. Use PayPal or similar to pay through your checking account, its free and no fees and no buyer charges. And PayPal guarantees items and shipping sellers put on the websites. Read description fully and look for what is not said as to what is said.

    True, all purchases even over the internet are subject to state and local sales taxes and must be reported on tax returns, or you are subject to prison. Right now its is a voluntary admission and payment because Utah can't force other states to collect sales taxes for Utah and send it to us.

    Its only a matter of time for our legislators to pass a federal law for every business regardless of location must collect and transfer sales tax collection through interstate and international banking. Making it a less desirable shopping choice.
