However,
this is like a beacon of hope that consumers help each other fighting cyber
crime by actively exposing ill-intent sellers.

 

Nevertheless,
prevention is the best defence, added Dr. Chaiyapong. “Before making any
purchase or submitting to a long-term contract, check for seller good tracking
records, and verification information regarding their identity and services. Consumers
should be well-advised not to conclusively rely on product reviews, because
they can be easily made up without any proof by the cyber criminals.”

The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I came across this in my search for something regarding this.
