Canada’s Better Business Bureau is warning that buying cigarettes from online international sellers can lead to trouble with the law. The BBB warns that if the seller does not accept credit cards and requests either wire transfers or a prepaid debit card not to continue with the sale, the seller will take your money but your order will never arrive.

The BBB suggests to look for contact information or an online presence, look for real addresses and telephone numbers. They also suggest to use the website Whois.com to look up domain names to confirm if the website is registered in the country where the business claims to be located.
