We don't trust the Net - survey

A survey of 1,000 people in the UK has revealed a deep distrust of the Internet which is still seen as a haven for pornography and fraud.

Which? Online's survey revealed that half of those surveyed believe fraud is a major issue on the Internet. Two thirds believe the Net is used by fanatics to promote their racist or extreme religious views.

On a more positive note, 62 percent of those surveyed think shopping on the Net is as safe as using a mail order catalogue and over a quarter had actually bought goods over the Internet.
