Mr. Strouse hit the nail on the head.

Using online banking is the same whether or not your bank has a physical location. You need to make sure that the site is encrypted and that their data center has strong security systems.

Also, you need to make sure that your computer system is clean from Viruses and Spyware. If you use online banking from an infected system, you riske putting your financial information into the hands of the spyware mafia.

Just do some background on the banks. Otherwise, like Vi said, they should be as safe as banking with any other bank that offers online banking.

I'd just make sure to do some research on the bank first if they are online only. MSN has the top 10 listed here.

Good Luck,
