In my previous article, I have talked about some of the ways that you can identify a trustworthy website. I believe if you have been following some of these articles, you can save yourself from credit card frauds among other crimes committed online. In this article, which is the second part of the article, I want to talk about some of the ways of identifying an untrustworthy website.
First and foremost, such website might come from an email messages or links from someone you do not know. You should always be very careful not to click on links sent by someone you do not even know. There is high tendency that such link will take you to an illegal and harmful website.
There is also the probability of such website presenting illegal or harmful contents. Some of them might be pornography websites or sites promising gifts that are too good to be true. They can be set up to scam unsuspecting users.
One major symptom of such websites is that at times, they ask users to provide credit card information or other sensitive information when such are not necessary for what they are trying to do.
When you are on such site, you might be asked to provide credit card information when there are no guarantee that such information are secured. You should not supply your credit card information when there are no padlocks or the site is on https.
