Cybercriminals can defy the odds and forge the identities of even the largest enterprises. That said, e-tailers are at higher risk of being falisifed. The only way to find out if the e-tailers are legit is to do a background check and ask the major brands their trusted and accredited e-tailers are.
To avoid bogus E-tailers, here are the DON’TS and DO’S
- Don’t give your credit card details easily. Even a reseller tells you that this a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ special offer. For them, you are a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ victim. Then it is too late when you find out that your bank account is empty.
- Check the names and web addresses carefully.
- Take time to read their company’s background and testimonials from their customers.
