how to know if a website is legit?

39 78 September 6, 2017 at 01:17 PM
I've seen people posting about how they know when a website was created to find out if it's a scam or not. If you know how to do this, please help.

Thank you!

It depends what kind of website we are talking about. Fake news is different from ecommerce. If prices are too good to be true from a brand new shop that has no history, chances are it's probably not legit.

I usually check a link with Virus Total URL checker, if a link is sent to me I don't recognize, to see if it has been reported as malicious.

They are in a real building according to the address listed

https://www.google.com/maps/@41.9...312!8i6656

This to me says they are NOT on the total up and up

1year registration they usually don't plan on keeping the name. Might of even got it free for the first year. You post your resume and they get a lot of personal information from you?

I applied for several jobs on career builder and I received an email to this link. I received a lot of emails about jobs. This one looked legit too from the letter to the website itself...But it felt too good to be true. I was skeptical so I wanted to know when this website was built. I didn't apply...I was so tempted to and I can see how people would jump on it.

Who's better to scam than desperate job searchers like me.

Can't trust anything anymore

Thanks for all your help.
