Known Scam / Rip-off Websites


The internet is full of scammers! Here are a few tips on things to look out for before you click that "Buy Now" button.

  1. Many of the scammers out there are from foreign countries. If their English grammar is poor, if their punctuation is poor, if there are a lot of mis-spelled words or words used incorrectly, that's a big RED FLAG, watch out.

  2. If they have images that state they are members of the Better Business Bureau (BBB), the image should be a click-able link that takes you to the BBB's website with information about the website in question. If it doesn't, there is a 99.999% chance they are NOT members of the BBB and are simply trying to trick you into believing their company is a member so they can steal your money, why else would they lie about that?

  3. If they have an image that says their web site is secure and uses SSL encryption to protect your personal and financial information, that image should be click-able and when clicked on, it should open a pop-up window giving you information about the site in question, and naming the exact web site you are on (click on the DigiCert Secure-Trusted image at the top of any of our pages for an example).

  4. When you get to the "Check-out Page", the web address of the page you are on should begin with: https:// which indicates the page is being served to you securely. If it doesn't start with https:// you are foolish to provide your information as it will not be encrypted when it gets sent.

  5. If they ask you for your Social Security number or the last four digits of that number or your birth date, they are mining you for personal information that isn't required for such a purchase but will come in handy when they try to apply for credit cards in your name or use the credit card info you provided to buy themselves something nice, on you of course!

Please be careful out there. Be smart, be aware, be informed.
