Just wondering if anyone know of some things to look for to keep myself from being scammed. Actually looking at an already established business online for sale right now. The owner seems to be cool but im not really sure anymore. Ive checked alexa and i know that the site is real. Ive looked over all screenshots and what not but ive heard they can be doctored. I mean what the hell. Its really aggravating now that it is so easy for someone to be scammed online and there is nothing you can do about it when its done.
The owner told me if a put a certain figure down hed be willing to finance the rest over a certain period of time. He even says that he will come to my house and train me on how to do everything....even after me telling him he would only get the downpayment when he shows up at my door. What do you all think? What steps can i take at this point to make sure i dont get scammed.
Ps...ive gotten an email from someone the other day that i dont know telling me that he is a scammer...and it took me offguard..and the sad thing is i dont even know if believe him or not. Everything just seems right to me but i guess you never know. I mean if he was willing to come to my home before he got any money doesnt that show right there that he is for real??? I dont even know anymore and any advice would be greatly appreciated.
