Fake Shopping Sites


Fake shopping websites are online portals that mimic legitimate businesses to trick unsuspecting buyers into purchasing non-existent products or surrendering their personal information. They often use tactics like unbelievable discounts, false information, and unsecure payment platforms to lure in victims.



FAke Shopping Website

Here are some tips to help you identify a fake shopping website:

  1. Study the Seller's Website: Look out for poor grammar, spelling mistakes, or low-quality images, which are common indicators of a fake website. The watermark in their photos must exactly match their website address.
  2. Check for Contact Details: Legitimate sites will provide a phone number, physical address, and customer service options.
  3. Verify the URL: Fake websites may use a domain name closely resembling a reputable brand to confuse buyers. There is only one, no other site containing TaminoAutographs in the web address is real.
  4. Avoid Unsecure Sites: Check if the site uses HTTPS instead of HTTP, indicating it's secure and encrypts your data.
  5. Beware of Unrealistic Discounts: If a deal seems too good to be true, it probably is. Nobody can ever offer 40, 50 and 60% discounts in many or all autographs being offered, just like that.
