Help and Advice / 5 Quick Scam Markers
« on: January 07, 2014, 08:59:31 PM »
5 Easy Ways To Detect A Scam Site.

1. Fake Seals. These are the emblems at the bottom of the screen and often for  scam sites are the images have been copy/pasted and are not clickable or don’t have the correct dates on.



2. Too good to be true! .An offer that beats the likes of amazon or larger online stores by more than you would expect  by a site nobody has heard of should be regarded with caution. Nobody in their right mind is going to be selling the latest iPhone at a 50% discount !

3. Unusual Payment Methods. The method of payment is via a bank transfer, western union or similar. You will have zero protection if you do not use a credit card or Paypal.

4. Who is this? Missing business / address information from the contact or about us page or lots of poor english. If you can’t actually find the business name/address - why would you feel inclined to type in your credit card information?!

5. Too New. The Website is only a few days old (use http://scamadviser.com to check) and the life of the website/domain is just a year. Many scam sites pop up and close down in a matter of months. Don’t go buying a $2000 oled TV from a website 2 days old unless you have done your research.

Although these points might not always indicate a scam or fake site they are often the top “markers” commonly found in scam sites. As always be sure to checkout the website on http://scamadviser.com to get a more in-depth analysis of the website.

Take Care Out There !!
