First of all I think this site is the best thing sence water even though i think you should add spell check to it.
But the problem is I received a flag from CA website inspector that states that accessing www.yola.com could put me at risk for identity theft or other financial fraud. now even though this is the first time i ever been flaged like that I have zero income and zero work so I can,t afford to ignore this warning nor do I feel good about putting someone else information at riskand with the plans I had for this site other people I don't even know would be at risk also and I just don't live my life like that I respect people.
Besides if I ignore warnings the security on my system would be useless.
I pray you can get this matter resolved because you really do have a good site but I don't know the whole story.

Hi Kenneth

First of all I can assure you that using Yola does not open you up to fraud or identity theft!

There are any number of reasons why a particular service might be throwing up a security warning and these are not always accurate. For example someone could have reported a site created by a Yola customer that has no affiliation with yola.com and the website inspector flagged our site by mistake. I would like to investigate further and see if we can get Yola on their whitelist. Can you send me the link to the website inspector that you are using?

I wanted to see if staff responded before I put my two cents in.

It is good to have true concern about protecting your possible future customers.I also did a little due diligence before using Yola for my shopping site. What I found was very good...The articles I found in trade journals and some of the major newspapers lend much credibility to Yola being a legitimate viable company.I have a 20 plus year background as a Purchasing Manager so I am used to doing this sort of thing before doing business with a company....Everything I found concerning Yola was very upfront and transparent.

Many times different anti virus program will see things as threats that other don't and sometimes it can be as Monique says.For example Alexa shows as a Yellow site on McAfee Site Advisor.....Yola shows Green as does mine on McAfee.

A security plus that you get with sites hosted on Yola or other major hosting sites is a team of engineers working to keep our sites safe.

I easily integrate PayPal for my Yola site and when my customers go to check out they are actually on PayPal's https secure servers and I never see their credit information.

As for spell check....If you use the Firefox browser you always have spell check.You will see a red line under words you misspell.If you highlight the word and right click you can get the corrected spelling.
