Online Shopping: How to Spot a Scam

The Internet can be a great way to find products and services that may not be readily available in your local area; however, it is important for you to determine whether or not a commercial website is legitimate before making any purchases. To find out if a website is legitimate, check for third-party verification from a reliable source (e.g., Google), make sure the site’s contact info matches the data provided in a Whois search, watch out for stolen content or misleading redirects, and type the name of the site into an internet search to check for existing scam reports. Taking a few simple precautions should help you avoid giving your personal and financial information away to scammers and frauds.
