SCAM websites

Saw this “great” website recently with massive sunglasses discounts



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
