    The online market is growing rapidly and though it has evolved rapidly but the loop holes do exist with online transactions. It is necessary to have caution while purchasing products online. These tips are important not only for the customers but also for the sellers.

    Thanks for sharing some tips in avoiding online market frauds. Well, most people that becomes victim of online frauds are those who are not that literate in using the technology that we have today. I am not saying that all victims of online fraud are dumb, because we all know they know what they are doing. The problem is that there should be enough education or at least a seminar to teach individuals, even me, some sort of things to know to better avoid such frauds and mishaps online.

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Just to add. If an offer is too good to be true, then more likely than not, it is a fraud and you should be very careful. Quality and price are related, if you want a quality product or service, you need to pay the price.
