I joined a social self-improvement recently that has a free mode and a paid mode.
I decided to upgrade to a paid mode, but when I was redirected to the page requesting my credit card information, my browser showed the connection to be insecure: No padlock icon, and no https in the address bar; instead the address was: http://secure.[domainname].com/signup/Default.aspx
I tried this in several different browsers, with the same results.
I immediately aborted entering any personal information and called the company.
The customer service rep said she could not transfer me to the tech person, but he had told her it was secure even though there was no lock, and to tell customers not to worry, but she could not explain how or why.
Is this possible .... should I risk entering my information?
The woman who referred me had her credit card cloned after using this service .... could be coincidence ... or not.
Thanks for any help or advice you can give me.

If someone you know got their credit card cloned from this site that's a big red flag. I would say you are very lucky you didn't enter your data. IMHO, steer clear of any questionable site like this.
