Web Site Verification Seals - Secure Socket Layer Protocol
« on: January 13, 2014, 09:41:57 PM »
Web site verification Seals, Certificate and Logo's. Are they real? A review on How to Check.

☞ SSL (https://)- Secure Socket Layer protocol

☛ Note: Scam websites "WANT" you to "FREELY" give "THEM" your personal and credit card information by deceiving you into believing they are Secure or Trusted!

☛ Also Note: Most Phishing / Scam sites do not have malicious software to download or viruses for your computer so they may be listed in some anti-virus review sites as "good" or "no threats".

I will use this site as an example review (links may/do not work if the site is closed down (it was), but the basic info applies):

☠ MaxGain (www.sontab.ru): Male enhancement Scam/Phishing Site.

⌦ With these Scam sites you can never tell what you would actually get - even something that would endanger your health, or probably nothing at all. The bottom line is that these criminals are just trying to defraud you. Give them you credit card number and personal information, and they will rob you or sell that data on the black market.

⌦ A "red flag" should pop up if you have purchased something from a site and they keep putting you off by not answering you or delaying the process. Remember for a credit card purchase often after 30 days have passed since a charge was made you may not have anything to complain about to the credit card company! "Ever had a business that kept putting you off and wounded why they said it would take 35 days to process the order, but they charged the credit to your account after a few hours or days.. Threaten them with canceling the charge if they don't respond faster to your inquiries.

⌦ For the men, you should think with your big brain, not the little one, or listen to the spouse (best choice). These thugs count on that the deceived men will be too embarrassed to tell anybody about it, and the scam will keep flourishing.

☛ Look over the site "www.sontab.ru" and you will see:

⌦ Page - SECURE ORDER FORM: http://www.sontab.ru/order.php
Notice how they ensure you that the site is secure. They have a graphic of a "blue combination-lock" on the page... Wow that makes me feel more secure!!!

☛ And if you click an item to order you are taken here:

⌦ Page - SECURE CHECKOUT: http://www.sontab.ru/checkout.php?item=1 and it has; "This is a secure transaction." It's a good thing they "told" me it was secured... I was a bit concerned.

☛ And they also re-ensure you that its a "secure transaction" because it shows a graphic of different "lock". And here I was getting worried!!!

⌦ And some sites will even have a "lock" as its "FavIcon" (the little icon on the left side of the browsers URL bar where you see the http"//www) trying to trick you into believing the site is secured. Hey, its a "lock", right...
See here: http://rxfromhome.com Yes this site is also a Scam.

⌦ Any site requesting "your" private and credit card information should be secured with "Secure Socket Layer protocol", a SSL certificate (and even that's not guaranteed, it could be an invalid/fake SSL). A site with SSL has the "lock" icon located in your "browsers" top bar with the URL or in the bottom bar (IE/FireFox). Clicking on that "browser" lock icon will open a page about "that" sites SSL certificate. Some sites use a free or fake SSL certificate and clicking on the "browsers" SSL icon may show "This web site does not supply ownership information." Because its Fake...

✓ More info about SSL: http://www.digicert.com/ssl.htm
Using this site (there are many) you can check if a site even has SSL installed, or if its valid.

⌦ SSL Certificate Installation Verification (you can edit the URL below and add any domain name (replace: www.sontab.ru) at the end of it to check a different site):

⌦ Open that link and you will see that the site www.sontab.ru "does not" have any SSL certificates installed; it's "Non-Secured" Open to the Internet, which is "everyone". No matter what they say on the site or guarantee you.
