Fraud has existed in various forms throughout human history. But with the development of high technologies, the combinations of taking money from the population have become much more complicated.
If you do not want to become a victim of scammers, then do not pursue "super-profitable" and "ultra-cheap" offers. When you see an interesting offer, put yourself in the shoes of the seller. Think about why he makes such a discount? For example, a large markdown was made on food. This could be due to an expiration date. Therefore, before purchasing, read the manufacturing date and shelf life.
You should also be on your guard if the advertising offer is formulated in a florid and incomprehensible way. This is not an accident, but a well-thought-out marketing ploy that allows unscrupulous manufacturers to evade responsibility. It is better not to get involved with such firms.
To protect yourself from fraudsters, check the information provided to you. If the company has decorated its office with diplomas and certificates, read the details of the organizations that issued these documents. Then find out from these institutions whether this company was really awarded these regalia. In the event of fraud, terminate your business relationship with this company. After providing clients with false information once, they can do it in the future.
We should also mention online fraud. Before you take part in any financial project, read the reviews on this site. Taking these precautions will save you money.
Trust only the facts. For example, if an internet entrepreneur claims to be online for 10 years, check the age of the site. To do this, use one of the following resources: https://www.nic.ru/whois, https://www.1stat.ru/?show=whois, https://www.seobuilding.ru/whois.php, http: //www.webconfs.com/domain-age.php. If the site actually exists for 3-4 months, then, most likely, its creator starts some kind of scam and attracts future victims with the illusion of reliability.
Another way to check the integrity of an Internet resource is to contact support. Ask a question about one of the directions of the site. If this is a one-day project, then you will not be answered at all, because such resources simply do not have a support service. The answer may be vague and generalized. This means that the developer does not want to tell you about all the nuances. And in case of claims, he will accuse you of not reading the contract carefully.
