There are a variety of problems occurring nowadays in the online purchasing and trading of many things nowadays. Just like the people may get trapped into some sort of spams or unauthorized dealings and suffer a lot of economic losses and also lose trust with even the trusted dealers. A lot of cases have been reported in the previous years about the online thefts that people faced to the government and the police but it is difficult for such cases to be solved as the criminals do not actually stay at the same business for long. However, some cases have actually been solved and the criminals have been charged of theft and fraud. The government of almost all countries takes major or minor steps depending upon their priorities to keep aware the people about such incidents.
Some of the online thefts include the fake mobile purchasing and selling and the customers know at a later stage that no such original company exists and many similar types of cases. Let’s take for example that in Seattle, USA a group of people have been working under a false name of the locksmith company named ‘’emergency locksmiths in Seattle”. The people living in the local area have been hiring the locksmiths through online services. They used to have fake addresses of the government buildings to enlist them as authentic company. They even earned through running citations and surveys to improve their work to become a top rated local website. The people used to purchase security items from them and after paying them a great amount they eventually found out that the company was actually fake and did not exist. The police was notified of this problem but by the time they took actions a lot of damage had been done. Hence, it is advised by the people and the government all over the world that everyone has to be careful before taking himself into the dealings with an online service providing company for purchasing or even selling.
The most appropriate method of taking precautionary measures before paying someone is to first Google the specific website and try to find out the comments and verification of the people or some authority to find out if the particular company is actually working or a fake one. Also it should be kept into mind that one should never believe in things that seem too good to be true. One should always be careful in spending money in online schemes or prize winning lotteries or other means by which the company asks the customer to pay them for transportation or some beneficial money. A lot of people all over the world although being such thefts still fall to prey to such organizations. Hence, all the governments along with the currents steps they are taking should also spend some of the resources to make people spend money only on the authentic websites or even the local companies who are registered by the government only so that they could avoid fake companies.
