While we can say the number of new scams and fraud cases occurring is increasing, we don't understand the full picture since its predicted most of it goes unreported. In this current period more and more people will fall victim to online scams as they desperately look for solutions to their money worries.
Whether you are new to the world of trading online, have been lucky to avoid being scammed or are even aware of some scams operating on the internet I'd like to offer this advice to help you minimise your exposure to scams and protect your business online with the help of Online Fraud Prevention System:
• Be wary of laws in other countries as they will differ from those in the U.K. and the U.S. There are many countries where fraud originates from such as Romania and other countries that have unreliable postal services such as Italy. So it is wise to refuse to send goods to certain countries or use more secure postal methods if you do decide to ship to questionable countries.
• If you are buying goods never use bank transfer or money gram or as they offer no protection and it will be hard to trace the money should the goods not turn up.
• You can fight click fraud and protect your business by implementing order monitoring systems which will look for multiple orders being placed from the same account within a short time such as within minutes, a few hours or the same day
