iYogi Fraud Alerts Educates about the Internet Auction Fraud
Fraudsters may find new ways to con people by targeting them by various means. iYogi, a global on-demand remote tech support services company, provides personalized computer support to its consumers, regularly alerts them about such frauds. Internet auction frauds are the ones where fraudsters aim to rob the funds from buyers and sellers on Internet auction sites simultaneously. They acquire the payment of selling a commodity from the buyer but never deliver the same. The fraudsters don’t even make the post-selling payment to the concerned seller of the commodity/service. If you are a buyer, confirm the identity of the seller as best as you can. You should request both a physical address and telephone number of the seller and call the given number to verify that it is genuine. Do not pursue deals with sellers who avoid providing this information. Guard against "phishing" e-mails that appear to come from the Internet auction site and ask for your personal information. Legitimate companies do not request such information via e-mail and protect you from such frauds.
