  • Check out the company’s official website, also be sure to check whether everything they say about themselves is what you find.
  • Don’t forget to check out the company contact details such as telephone number and address. It should match the address found on that message sent by an stranger.

Verify the Company’s Policy, Documents….


As there will be some restriction for every company it should be added over on their site. So check for the company’s legal documents. You may even check their privacy policy, about their works, disclaimer and more, just for verifying that they are standard and not CHEATS. Also try to know more about the staffs working in the  company and try to ask for stranger’s  name. This can make you satisfied for about 20%.

Many people share their personal details over internet and  scammers take full advantage of it. Most  scammers are finding the way to cheat common people by using their credit cards, debit cards and more. So my advice is Not to share your personal information such as Pin numbers, Passwords, Account numbers, Social Security Numbers. to anyone unless they are your family or legal advisers. If you trust anyone quickly then its all your fate and you will soon be cheated. So always be warned yourself and think a while before processing anything.

    Identity theft is so easy these days especially with the inflock of millions of new Internet users via Mobile devices.
    Some domains mask their identity tho and CAC in nigeria does not really have a “Real Time” verification option for checking company details.
    Nice Article tho.

    The menace of online scams is frustrating. A lot of people have been “destroyed” by scammers posing or pretending to be genuine business men and women. It really becomes important to watch out for this phenomenon!

    It takes two to tangle and we should really not pretend to reap where we do not sow! Why am I saying this? It is simple, many who are scammed are those who believe in short cuts and the get rich quick syndrome!

    Although many other people are scammed unsuspectingly, yet the proportion of those scammed are those that are not careful, those who want to get rich overnight, and those who throw caution to the wind with regards to the security of their personal details and website!

    I upvoted this post in kingged where it was shared for Internet marketers.

    Hello Segun,

    It is a great thing you’re raising awareness. I for instance wouldn’t advice to click on any link in your email if you suspect anything.

    They can install a malware on your browser and can spy on you at the end. There are scamming companies all over ranging from winning a lottery to having to send bank details to somewhere.

    I saw this post shared on and it was indeed worth the share!
