The Internet has it’s share of scams and schemes, but protecting yourself from many, if not all of them is easy.
One popular scheme is to send you an unsolicited Domain Renewal form. The service is usually legit, but the price is 6 to 10 times as high as normally charged for renewal.
Another scheme involves calling you on the phone to verify your business information for inclusion into a search engine you never heard of. Once you verify your contact information, they usually send you an invoice for several hundred dollars!
So how does one protect themselves from these and other scams? Simple. Do not pay any invoices until you have discussed them with your trusted Website provider!
He or she will be happy to discuss any items with you. If you don’t have a trusted Website provider, please give me a call, I’d love to meet you!
