How to spot a scam website?
Hi there, I don’t know if this is on the right board but just want some advice please.
A friend in his 70’s has just ordered something from a website and has asked me if I can track when it’ll be delivered. The website is “sfqvvv” in its address (sorry I can’t post a link yet) and the company is “qpgvwia” I’m pretty sure it’s a scam site. I’ve looked at Whois but I don’t understand the info it gives me but it says Redacted on most of it so I don’t think that’s a good sign. My friend is very independent so I want to give him some online tools so he can check companies out for himself - even though I’m happy to help him. Is there a definitive site to check, for someone who isn’t too clued up on internet language etc. Or does anyone have a list that he can refer to of what to look out for? He paid via PayPal so hopefully he can get his money back.
