4. Some tips for protection against fraud
There are a number of safety precautions you can exercise to minimise the risk of fraud or to recognise fraudulent behaviour at early stage. The internet always offers new opportunities for defrauders.
This is why we have a few tips for you about how you can protect yourself from fraudsters. In general, you should always try to find out more about a possible business partner you have contacted over the Internet.
Here are a few short tips from Stocklots24:
Detailed tips by Stocklots24:
Check the contact details
- Is the phone number correct?
- Is the stated address correct?
- Is this company registered in the phone book or in the Yellow pages?
- Are there negative ratings for this company?
- Ask your business partner for company documents:
- Business registration
- Copy of their passport
- Trade register excerpt
- Is your business partner a verified member at Stocklots24?
- Is it possible to meet the business partner in person?
- Order sample goods first, in order to test the quality
- Do not pay larger amounts as down payments.
- Do not transfer money to an account whose owner you do not know.
- If possible, pay per cash on delivery, this is now also possible throughout Worldwide.
- Pay by escrow system.
Always check that the address, phone number, and email address that was given to you by your business partner are the same as those from the company that you were told. If a business partner gives you differing contact details, for example an address in Italy and a phone number in a different country, we recommend that you check whether the address and phone number are available in the local phone book. If he gives the email address of a trade partner, saying he works for a certain company, you should also check this. Please bear in mind that fraudsters are able to operate with an email address of a company, even though they are not actually employed there. Everybody with a bit of technical know-how can use an email with a fraudulent address.
If the dealer says he is a verified member, visit his profile on Stocklots24
and check it.
Meet your business partner in person
If possible, try to meet your business partner in person. Even though the internet offers you a rich variety of information about your possible business partner, there is no substitute for personal contact. This is the only way to evaluate his business. Do not take any large amounts of money along to the first meeting.
Protect yourself by ordering or receiving a sample.
Purchase a sample first and convince yourself that the product meets your expectations, before purchasing a large numbers of goods without knowing the quality.
Protect yourself against pre-payments
Sometimes a supplier asks for a pre-payment before accepting the order. While this is not unusual for common trade partners, you should check this when dealing with a business partner for the first time. Ensure that sufficient background information is available for this supplier before you agree to pay or ask for a different method of payment, for example by escrow.
If the seller concentrates on the payment more than on anything else or pressurises you to pay you should be careful. Pay special attention if the seller asks you to transfer money to an account for which the true holder cannot be identified.
Payment per C.O.D.
Offer to pay cash on delivery. The seller can be sure to get his money and you can be sure to get the goods. Some sellers do however ask for a small pre-payment, to ensure that you accept the package. This should only be a small amount.
What should I do if I´ve already become a victim of fraud?
If you are a victim of fraud, we urge you to press charges. Usually fraudsters stall their customers with constantly excuses. If you have not received your goods four weeks after payment you should press legal charges.
Please send us a copy of the complaint. We will then close the account of the dealer as soon as possible.
We hope that we are able to save you from future problems with these tips.
