The fakes, the scammers, the phonies, the hucksters, they are out there and they are out there on droves in the world we like to call the internet. There are so many people out there trying to make money off of scamming people on the internet that it is almost amazing. But you will not be scammed, you know why? Because you have us on your side, the people that are dedicated to exposing the scammers.
Not all scammers are obvious, and the ones that are will not be around long enough to get you most likely. The ones you need to watch out for are the ones that are less obvious about what they are trying to pull and the ones that seem like legitimate businesses. In order for us to do our job of identifying scams, we must show people that there are ways to be safe online and ways to show scammers what is up.
Spotting the fakes from a mile away
We have long been in the business of online advertising, which is why we know so much about what to look for and how to expose the fakes. Obviously if a deal seems to good to be true it is, but moreover, we are looking for the sites that are not technically scams. Take for example an item that seems way too discounted. It is a legit site, but there is no way that the price is correct.
So why is it so cheap? Well it is because they are charging you way too much for shipping. And while this is not necessarily a scam, we are here to perhaps not shut them down, but let our readers know that these are sites to look out for and make sure they read the fine print.
