So many scam news everyday and yet people don’t understand and take precautions while making a deal. Here are some suggestions on how to avoid a scam while making a deal on internet.
Haste makes waste; do take reviews if you don’t know the person you are dealing with. There is nothing wrong in getting a bit late rather than losing all of your money. While I have seen that the members of this group are quiet active. Reviews help others also, get reviews and then deal.
Avoid accepting 2-3 reviews, let your post blend in the group’s Timeline, you’ll get reviews but if no one reviews a person and you also don’t know if the person is trusted or not, don’t deal.
Make sure the person is real, his name and photo should be real and double check the profile link, if he/she has set a username it should (most probably) match the name of his/her profile.
Before making any payment make sure the name on profile and the name given with account number match, if not don’t deal unless off course you know the dealer personally.
If the person you are dealing with is in a hurry for you to make payment, don’t deal. If all of the above mentioned things match properly, don’t pay him full, trust runs on both sides, if you trust him with your money he should trust you with the deal, make the rest of the payment after the deal is done and product is delivered.
Trusted people have a solid way of communication, don’t accept any “AAIN BAAIN SHAAIN” and don’t close a deal if the other side’s seems a bit shaky.
Check for the product pricing from different sources, if the person is selling something less than the actual amount mentioned on different sources, he might be making you fool, don’t deal.
Trust your gut feeling, if you feel uncomfortable while making a deal, don’t deal. Get contact details of the person you are dealing before making payment, trusted people don’t hesitate giving you their contact details because they are legit. Contact details help you track a person if he/she happens to be a scammer.
These are some of the things one must keep in mind before closing ANY deal on internet. If you guys think of anything else, post a comment I’ll add it in the post. Stay blessed.
