    thelinuxstore.ca Trusted site?


    If I wanna buy linux CDS and I dont have a credit card is thelinuxstore.ca a good site. I see a thing to pick money order, so can I just send cash in the mail????

    Also is it safe to give them my shipping information??? I have gave shipping info before to:

    Orybx software -- for a driver CD
    Microsoft-- XP SP2 CD
    Shipit-- Free Ubuntu CD

    I trust the places above [microosft wont kill anyone in my house at night, cuz then theres less people living to get bill Gate$ rich!!]


    Anyways, can I trust thelinuxstore.ca? I never paid for anything off the net, only free stuff, so Im not sure if I can send cash in the mail...

    I've never used thelinuxstore.ca, so I can't say whether or not they're trustworthy. What I can say is never send cash (as in actual bills in an envelope) through the mail. Use a cashier's check, a real bank check if you have an account, or a money order. All three of these methods offer you some sort of protection should your envelope get lost or stolen in transit.

    a money order is secured cash almost like a check. if it gets stolen there is a way to recoup the funds and you cant cash it very easily if you are not the intended recipient. i used to use them on ebay before there came paypal, bidpay and such.

    In a manner of speaking, yes. Money orders are an alternative to sending cash in the mail. Here's the Wikipedia explanation:

    Which is why we also suggested money orders. You go to a place like Western Union, give them the cash, they write you a check for the person you want to send it to, and send it off. Honestly, do you even read the answers to the questions you ask?

    Oh, they write a cehquw from their account? And I pay them cash, actaully im doing something similar to get a Rom Card for NDS/GBA, give cash to someone with a credit card and they take my cash and use it to pay..

    You go to a place like Western Union, give them the cash, they write you a check for the person you want to send it to, and send it off
    Thats a good explanation! You shuld just said that instead of linking, I read about the first paragraph, anyways, I thnk I see a Western Union sign at a store i know, so I give them cash for a cheque, send it off and thelinuxstore cahses it and sends my CD(s) off?? And if something goes wrong the cheque never gets cashed and I can claim my money back?

    contact Western Union ....
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
