Re: TOP 10 ANTI-SCAM Unique Skill For Online Shopp

Click here you can get the site domain register information: http://whois.domaintools.com/, including register time, register name and business address. A scam will provide incomplete or false information, and always replace identity, so the site they register must be not long. Therefore, the longer the site was registered with more detailed register information, the higher credibility the site has.

2. Check whether they have business in authoritative third-party trading platform

In general, a good merchant will use authoritative third party trading platform selling products, in order to improve their market share, at the same this is a symbol of strength. Common third-party trading platform have Alibaba, eBay, Amazons, etc… These third-party trading platform are transparent and fair. In particular, the credibility of their evaluation system is perfect. You can obtain more objective information from them. For example, you can search business name Alibaba from Google, and you can confirm whether this site registered and sold in Alibaba.

3. Check whether they pass the third-party network security certification


McAfee and Versign are the world’s most authoritative network security certification. Fortune 500 companies usually pass their certification. Their certification have strictly business identity confirm system. And frequently doing site scanner, to ensure security of the site free of Trojan horses, viruses, spyware and other threats. If a site does not have such certification logo, please do not purchase products from them. (Note: Many sites, just hang a symbol, and they have not been authenticated, you should be especially careful about these sites.)

4. Check whether exist price trap

Online shopping scam usually because believe “sth falls into one’s lap” , when meet a product incredible far below market price, they will produce the impulse to buy. At this moment, remember to be calm, high price doesn’t necessarily lead to a high-quality product, as the same low price doesn’t means the high-quality too. Probably the product is defective, imitate, repair products, parallel imports, or they will not delivery. Of course, sometimes an honest merchant may Clearance, discounts, payment coupons, please check the site by other methods.
5. Check whether they support Paypal payment

Paypal is a payment that tend to protect buyer in trading. If a customer does not receive goods or received goods does not match with the description, he can initiate a dispute within 45 days and get full refund without any excuses. Moreover, the frequent complaints by customers, or merchant who selling a large number of fake and shoddy products, his paypal account will frozen soon. Therefore, compare with those who only accept Western Union , T / T’s website, choose to support Paypal payment is more secure.
