I tend to agree with Robert - If someone steals your cash, it's gone. If someone makes a fraudulent transaction on your card, you just report it and the card issuer refunds it. It's a slight administrative nuisance, but it doesn't cost you anything. All you have to do is check your card statement each month for anything you don't recognise.

Except for TurboTax at Costco, I've been buying all my software online for over ten years. Most of it's not available through other channels. Credit card fraud's annoying since I have to get a new card and number two or three times a year, but online purchases are less of a risk than a restaurant or dry cleaner. This reminds me of the arguments people born in the 1920s make against using ATM machines.
