Concerned about using your Card online - buy a Prepaid Visa card with a fixed amount from the Supermarket or Post Office, when its used get another (some are reloadable) - this limits the amount that can be spent on the card and does not compromise you own personal accounts. There is a cost involved but this may be worth the peace of mind.
