Due Diligence you can do yourself


Unread postby Secret Squirrel » Thu Jul 14, 2016 7:49 am

Please note we are not a due diligence company. Nor do we recommend any particular due diligence company.

please see the following articles to help you perform your own basic due diligence work before considering an online transaction. Remember that these checks can not guarantee you are dealing with a real and decent company. Only a real due diligence agency can provide that information for you. It would really save you in the long run to hire a due diligence agency before making any international transaction.

These checks will spot a scammer and tell you not to deal with them.

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=41 <--- Identifing Scammers and Scam websites

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=26 <---- company details online

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=25 <-- is this company real??

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=3 <--- Never wire money to strangers

viewtopic.php?f=10&t=266 <---- Identifing scam email addresses

If any of these checks reveal that you are possibly dealing with a scammer, move on quickly.

Do not tell the scammer you know he is a scammer, just move on without letting them know the reason you will not deal with them. If you tell the scammer you know or think they are a scammer, you only educate them on how to get better at scamming not to mention that any posted warnings about them could be rendered useless if they change identities. They can change identities in minutes online.
