Online crimes and scams are everywhere nowadays. This is the reason why many people still don’t rely in transacting online even if it’s the most convenient and fast way in doing business. If you want to have a transaction online but afraid to mess up, read these tips:

1. Check the credibility of each person you meet online. If you don’t want to end up ****ed, avoid treacherous people. Hence, check the background of people you are keeping in touch with online. Even if he or she is a common friend, don’t put your guards off. Know what he or she has been doing these past weeks. If you find something fishy, avoid her or him at once. I know that it’s bad putting off people who are making friends with you and maybe creating efforts in renewing life. However, it’s better than having headaches in the future just because you’ve given them the chance.

2. Check if the person you are transaction with is indeed the person he or she claims to be. It’s easy to pretend to be someone you’re not, especially online. Internet gives so much information that it equips criminals to do evil. For instance, they may pretend to be a recruiting employer with the use of a valid name of a company representative. So, don’t instantly believe when someone claims a name and identity especially online. Find for valid contact details of the person or the entity he or she claims to represent. Give them a call to check your transaction. If he or she uses a valid email, number or social account of the person that he or she claims, don’t be relaxed. There are a lot of cyber crimes done out of hacking. If you know the person, ask him or her personally. If not, just send back the message or call him or her to confirm the call or message. As much as possible, don’t meet someone you only knew online.

3. Have a valid reference in checking credibility and backgrounds. Anybody can make a free website these days. Scammers often clean their hands from what they’ve previously done by cluttering the web with praises and false stories about them. As a matter of fact, they even hire people who’d write good things about them. So, don’t instantly rely on what you read online especially if it’s not from a credible website. Next>>>
