Although the internet is a very good source of companies offering various services there are a few things you should be aware of. The internet has almost given everyone the chance to hide behind a fake identity and unfortunately this has led to scams in various industries that use the internet to trade. Website Design is not the only service that has been affected by this and in this post we will look at how to tell if you are dealing with a licensed web design firm.
The way to tell if the web design firm is a legitimate company is very simple. You simple have to check out the information provided by the company. Search for the company name to see if it is actually registered and if the owner goes by the name that has been stated. Next you should check out the companies address and telephone numbers. These will also be registered to the company and most scammers will not have a registered business address.
These online scams work with people pretending to be business owners when they are not. They provide all of the information you would expect a registered web design firm to hold but as soon as you pay them for part of or your entire contract they take off and you never see your money again. Remember to be very careful when choosing to buy a service off of anybody on the internet.
