Whose website is it anyway?

This blog will go through some of the more common and notable internet marketing scams that are all over the web. It's important to understand how these scams work in order to be able to avoid them. Furthermore, I'll provide some tips on what you should look for when encountering these types of scams, and how you can protect yourself from falling victim.

There are many instances where people unknowingly fall into traps by clicking on or providing personal information they shouldn't, so it's important for individuals who find themselves in these situations to know how they can protect themselves from fraudulent websites while making a complaint at the same time.

What is a Webpage Scam?

A webpage scam is when a website appears to be connected with a legitimate company or person through circumstantial evidence, but that claim appears to be false. Examples of these include free credit card offers, online surveys and blog sites or webpages that appear to have connections with well known or mainstream companies. Many are designed to confuse the end user into doing things such as providing personal information, where they are then directed to other websites which steal their information (lose their information), and/or pose as websites that you need in order to do business with the true company.

Why are people so easily fooled?

They're looking for something that they want. That's the first reason. Another is that they just don't bother to care about what it is that they're clicking on or providing information about themselves before doing it. They say, "Hmm, I'm gonna trust this guy because it looks like he works for a legitimate company." When in reality, he's not. It's an easy way for scammers to steal personal information, or even access your computer and do whatever they want with it - including hacking into your computer.

How Do You Know if You're Being Tricked?

If you're not sure, here are some signs that you may be being tricked: [1] An advertisement or message on a website that appears to be connected with a known name, brand or reputable source. Such as a newspaper, television, magazine, email address or reputable internet site which asks if you've seen their website. Or, "Visit our new web site" with no other introduction. [2] A company that is offering something for free without giving away any information of who they really are or what the offer is all about (i.e., some kind of free computer software or codes). [3] Paying a fee to get back money you think is yours from a government agency or bank. [4] Paying a fee to watch a video that will show you how to get rich quickly, or how to make money online. This is usually where most people get tricked. They send their money in the form of a check through the mail, or by giving their credit card number over the phone asking for a one time purchase of $29.95 and then they receive nothing in return except excuses when they ask for their money back that they put down for the material/video/etc. [5] Form filling scams are pretty common these days especially on free classified websites and forums such as on craigslist.
