    How do you verify that 3rd party seals of approval are legitimate? I’ve seen so many bogus ones that I now ignore them all. Thanks, J.

      You can verify if the seals are legitimate by clicking on them and making sure that they link the organizations that created the seals and that it has the name of the site you are visiting on it.
