The internet nowadays is the best playground for business. Millions of people worldwide have access to it and since we live in an audio-visual culture, online markets have induced opportunity seekers with different splashes (programs made with Macromedia Flash), creative writing (such as excellently written ads) and videos to encourage them of venturing into their business.
Unfortunately, since the internet is an “all access” medium, many abuse it and many scams are continuously prevalent. If you have seen a “too-good-to-be-true” website, offering a relatively large paycheck for a “good-for-nothing” job (sites that offer “work from home and earn $50,000.00 per month while doing nothing!”), then might as well check the history of the said website.
How to do it:
1. Type in your address bar: http://whois.domaintools.com/
2. Affix the web address of the suspected website (i.e. if the website is http://www.website.info, then affix website.info AFTER THE SLASH).
3. You should now be able to see the history of the website, complete with the registrant’s name, how many other domains the registrant owns and how many times the said website has changed their domain name over a period of time).
