Why are we vulnerable to Internet scam-artists? The numbers of Internet users are increasing dramatically, and this incredible growth attracts all types, including scam-artists. It is imperative that you learn to protect yourself.It boggles the mind the number of people that are now using the internet. As of January 2008, according to Internet World 먹튀사이트 there are over 1.4 billion Internet world users and over 246 million of them are in North America.During the last 8 years, the numbers of users has grown by 127.9% in North America and by 290% in the world. The present numbers of users only make up 21% of the world population.
The third part of the equation is to listen to your inner self. To listen to you feelings and impressions operating at your subconscious level, you need to ignore the constant analyzing, rationalizing and out right arguing your conscious mind does to stop you from relying on your inner voice.
Dr. Martin Luther King Junior said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t have to see the whole stair case, just the first step”. Your first step of faith is listening to your inner self.
Dr. Ronald C. Bissel of Self Growth says that each time you listen to the wisdom of your voice, you are given new insight and are taken deeper into the spiritual aspects of your consciousness. Your inner voice creates a connection with your Creator that transcends our physical world. Understanding its value in your life will lead you into a deep level of trust.
How does this apply to buying a product from a reputable website? Your first impression of a Sales Page should not be your only guiding light. It may have the right colors, say all the right things and have great testimonials, but before you buy, be a diligent shopper.
Just to reiterate. Conduct an intensive observation on how the website looks, how organized is it and is the website functional and efficient. Then investigate as to what is behind the website. How reputable is the merchant and what do third party opinions say about the product and merchant. Then, of course, listen to your inner voice. Remember, your money matters, so be prudent purchasers.
With this tremendous internet user growth, of course, summons both the good and the evil. Unfortunately, scam-artists have wormed their way into the internet. You may have even fallen prey to one or more of these perverted predators, selling you their latest “get rich quick” scam.
The dictionary’s definition of scam is “a ploy by a shyster to raise money, a fraudulent business scheme, deprive by deceit”.
In the Internet world, the word scam-artist to me is best described as one who attempts to intentionally mislead a person or persons into buying a worthless product for the sole purpose of taking their limited supply of money.
Elie Wiesel said, “There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest”. We must protest against those who deceive us.
How To Protect Your Self From Scam-Artists
To identify a reputable website operated by an honorable owner/merchant, your undivided attention is required.
Remember the old adage – Do not Judge the Book by Its Cover. Well, it applies when you are selecting a merchant. You need to judge the website, judge the company behind the website and listen to your feelings and impressions operating at your subconscious level.
