Scamraiders has received dozens of emails from our Members with evidence of swindles on the internet involving the buying and/or selling of general merchandise. As an internet buyer, you can experience either purchasing goods that are never received or were misrepresented. As a internet seller, you sell in good faith, get paid via Pay-Pal or some
other “clearing-house”, but when the con artists get your goods, they quickly place a “stop payment” and then assert false claims that you never delivered what they ordered. After weeks of letters, phone calls, and emails in attempts by you to correct the wrong, you get the “shaft”, rather than get your money. This heartache is just not worth it.
Scamraiders will, over the next number of weeks, expose in a series of articles, many of the various pitfalls and landmines all of us can encounter in buying and selling of merchandise on the internet. This internet-commerce is not a simple “cakewalk” and you must know what to do and what not to do before rushing in to
this ruthless and dangerous arena. To get started, Scamraiders provides you with some helpful tips from knowledgeable links, particularly the FBI:

Scamraiders has quickly become very aware how all of us are sitting-ducks and can be unfortunate, unwitting targets for these unscrupulous internet swindlers who work overtime to figure out how to extract money from us with phony
offers of too-good-to-be-true bargains that become horrible nightmares. Scamraiders not only wants to do its share to help all of its Members/Users not to get roped into the murky world of internet or television frauds, but in addition, Scamraiders has decided to create a legitimate Forum/Mart for us to trade honestly and fairly without the fear of being ripped off and scammed. Accordingly, we are planning the launch of Sub-sites--ScamraidersMart.com and ScamraidersFleaMarket.com. Here, our Staff will search worldwide markets in order to find exceptional merchandise values. Scamraiders will then offer these selected quality products to its Members and Users so that they may enjoy a scam-free and worry-free shopping experience on the internet. This Service will provide an alternative to the reckless, treacherous, and swindle-filled arena of internet/television merchandise carpetbaggers. Stay tuned for more details and launch dates.
