Due to the overwhelming amount of calls we have received at our customer service department complaining about how people have been scammed by other websites, Cellhut has decided to take a moment and educate our customers about our policies and what to look for when dealing with other online retailers.
We at Cellhut takes fraud prevention very seriously and we want our customers to be aware of various scam techniques such as phony websites, spoofing, phishing, and e-mail frauds, that are very common among scam artists.
One important rule to follow is to remember to never disclose your personal and credit card information to websites and emails that you donít recognize. If you have never heard of the company asking for information, then donít give it to them.
Here are some ways that Cellhut seeks to ensure our customersí privacy:
Our website securely transmits your credit card and order information through Verisignís Secure payment infrastructure.
Controlscan routinely tests Cellhut.com for over 10,000 known website security vulnerabilities. Controlscan has conducted an in depth business background verification and awarded Cellhut.com with the seal of approval.
We will never ask you to e-mail us any information about your credit card, if you receive such a request please contact us.
Celhut.com uses up-to-date technology to protect credit card numbers and other confidential information when you place an order. Any information that you send to use is ďencryptedĒ through our secure site.
These websites are created with the sole intention of gathering financial information from the user. They
disguise themselves as legitimate vendors or use similar websites to trick the user into entering private information. If you see signs such as
a fake ID or published fake satisfaction guarantees then chances are itís a fake website.
Here are some signs that the website you may be dealing with are phony. Please read it carefully so you can protect yourself from scam artists.
Check the URL before submitting information. If the domain name, IP address, or similar looking domain name is misspelled then chances are that the site is fake.
Phony websites wonít have contact information, phone numbers, and wonít list a physical address.
If they donít reply to emails within a couple of days that means that they are likely a fake website. Also a legitimate website will never ask to update your credit card information over e-mail.
These scam sites will try to sell obsolete or new items. To try to trick you, they will use authentic logos and links to real web pages to give their page legitimacy.
You may also reach fraud websites by answering phony emails and clicking links from other websites. Always verify their information before dealing with them.
Finally, look for security logos such as Hacker Safe, and click on them to see if they are valid. This is a great way to see if the website has legitimate standards associated with it.
E-mail Frauds, Phishing:
This is another form of a scam that tricks people into providing financial information. You may receive emails using genuine logos or even a genuine website name. First of all, check the URL in the browser to make sure that it goes to the domain it claims to be from. Second, check the IP address to see if it matches. Finally do a little bit of research about the company to see what other people say about it.
You may receive emails from scam companies that ask you to update account information. A legitimate company will never ask you to give that information over the internet.
