    Tip: Gov site - Protect yourself from Internet fraud

    Federal Bureau of Investigation - Internet Fraud

    .
    The above link has lots of documentation ( here is a sample)

    Avoiding Internet Auction Fraud


    o Understand as much as possible about how the auction works,
    what your obligations are as a buyer,
    and what the seller's obligations are before you bid.

    o Find out what actions the web site/company takes if a problem occurs
    and consider insuring the transaction and shipment.

    o Learn as much as possible about the seller, especially if the only information
    you have is an e-mail address.
    If it is a business, check the Better Business Bureau where the seller/business is located.

    o Examine the feedback on the seller.

    o Determine what method of payment the seller is asking from the buyer
    and where he/she is asking to send payment.



    o If a problem occurs with the auction transaction, it could be much more
    difficult if the seller is located outside o

    o Ask the seller about when delivery can be expected and if there is a problem
    with the merchandise is it covered by a warranty or can you exchange it.

    o Find out if shipping and delivery are included in the auction price or are additional
    costs so there are no unexpected costs

    o There should be no reason to give out your social security number or drivers license number to the seller.
