Preventing Online Auction Fraud

Find out, as much as possible about, how the internet auction works, what are your responsibilities as a buyer, and what the are seller’s obligations before you bid. Learn as much as possible about the seller, especially if the only information you have is an e-mail address. If it’s a business, check the Better Business Bureau where the seller/business is located. Purchase items online using your credit card, you can often dispute the charges if something goes wrong with the transaction.
