SCAM websites

Saw this “great” website recently with massive sunglasses discounts

http://sunglassesusonline.com/

 

Seemed too cheap and of course if “something is too good to be true …”

Further investigation shows the website complies to all the dodgy tactics. Have a look at this guide to spotting fake sites.

Now I’m not proposing to uncover all the thousands of web SCAM sites but this proves as a perfect example of how you can investigate yourselves.  A few additional things I would add:

  • There is no PayPal payment method – this is suspicious
  • Do a search on ebay for the same product – see if the prices are similar. Most legitimate international vendors will have an ebay site also.
  • The copyright at the bottom; although it shows Ray-Ban when you hover over the link it links to itself
  • Nowhere on the site is there any business ownership detail
