marcus evans Scam Team

The Internet has got a great advantage for online scammers. With relatively low costs you can reach millions of potential victims. Necessary e-mail addresses are now available from dozens of companies, and in the dark areas of the Internet these can be free of charge. The know how to maliciously prepare websites and download male ware is widely used and distributed in obscure forums. Unfortunately there is not a lot that can be done about that, but marcus evans’s scam team is here to help.
marcus evans scam team have put together a few, simple save keeping rules:
• Be extremely careful with your account and credit card information. Give these only to trusted vendors. As soon as you suspect an online scam, cancel data entry and close the website.
• Become suspicious when entering personal data is required for a supposedly free quote.
• Be careful with spam emails that offer links to your bank or a credit card company. Reputable institutions do not send such messages.
• Do not open attachments in emails from senders you do not know.
• Use an anti-virus program for Windows and your browsers.

marcus evans scam team researched 5 scams you should know about:

  1. The classic: phishing emails

Circulating PayPal emails asking customers to confirm their account information, or perform a new registration. These mails are fake and help scammers to access account information. Banks, credit card companies and PayPal would never attempt to ask about sensitive information an email. Phishing emails are now sorted by most spam filters, but always make sure to visit bank's website by manually entering the address in the browser or through bookmarks.

  1.  Email from an attorney

To place viruses on other computers, fraudsters are using emails in which they mention outstanding three-figure sums, pretending to be a lawyer’s office or collection agency. But regardless of who sent the message, it is always the same old basic rule - do not open attachments in emails, where the sender is unknown.   

  1. Web shop does not provide goods

Classic fraud cases are web shops, which require payment in advance and then don’t deliver the goods. Since such behavior attracts criminal charges, these sites generally vanishing quickly. But before that a lot of cash can be made with the responsible owners untraceable.

  1. ESTA applications

For several years now the U.S. requires an electronic visa application under the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA), with an official online form -, plus a processing fee of $14. Some sites take advantage of the ignorance of many U.S. travellers and offer doing the application for them. However, this is associated with much higher costs reaching between 70 to 80 dollars.  

  1.  The intelligence test

Intelligence or IQ tests on the internet are almost as popular as googling yourself and a range of apparently free tests have been developed. Some of these prompt the user to not only answer test questions but also fill in their name and address in an electronic sheet to receive a detailed evaluation. By clicking the button the user agrees to the terms & conditions and automatically is charged a subscription fee. Again, when giving out personal information caution is advised.
