ScamAdviser.com is a website that describes itself as giving people the ability to quickly check a website they are considering purchasing something from to see whether a site is trustworthy before they use their credit card.
According to their website, ScamAdviser.com was created by a group of consumers who were sick of fraudulent websites getting away with scamming people out their money and wanted to give people a chance to expose these sites.
How Does ScamAdviser Work?
They say that while most other services that mark sites as trustworthy or not do so based entirely on whether or not that site is likely to infect your computer with malware. And while that is important information to have, there are many other ways to determine whether or not a website should be trusted, especially with your credit card information.
ScamAdviser.com says that they currently they use over 150 different criteria to rate their websites as trustworthy or not, however, they always encourage their users to use common sense first, as websites are always able to change owners or enact potentially new and harmful policies.
This website is completely free for visitors to use. They promise that right now all of their funding comes from donations and from the money they earn from allowing advertisements to run on their website - this ensures their services can remain free for their users.
Since their service is free to use, there is no Refund or Guarantee Policy. Unfortunately if you choose to purchase from a website they rate as trustworthy and you have a bad experience, ScamAdviser.com is not liable or responsible.
