Product Display Standardization: Legitimate sites maintain a consistent and standardized approach to displaying products. Be wary of sites with irregularities or inconsistencies in how products are presented.
Comprehensive Payment Channels, Especially PayPal: Check for diverse payment options. Legitimate sites usually offer various payment channels, including secure options like PayPal. The availability of PayPal can be an additional layer of security for buyers.
Social Media Operation Status: Investigate the site's presence on social media platforms. Check the number of followers, update frequency, and creation date. Scam sites often have a short lifespan, and their social media profiles may reveal irregularities.

Warning Signs Recap:
Too Good to Be True Prices: Be wary if the prices seem unrealistically low compared to reputable sites.
Limited Contact Information: Ensure that the site provides legitimate contact details, including an address, phone number, and email for customer inquiries.
Poor Website Design and Functionality: Professional sites invest in their design. If the site looks unprofessional or lacks secure payment options, exercise caution.
Lack of Reviews or Negative Reviews: Research customer experiences before making a purchase. A lack of authentic reviews or a pattern of negative feedback can be warning signs.
Protecting Your Rights:
Pay attention to the content of reviews: many users will leave reviews, which will make an additional judgment for you to confirm whether a site is safe or not.
Use sites with large followings: sites with large social media followings that have been created for a longer period tend to be more trustworthy.
