Verify Phone Numbers of Resellers

Another problem of spamming happening today is the Reseller's Spam. Sometimes, money and good are being stolen by these professional criminals who pretend they are resellers for online stores, although most of the time, what they really do is steal identity of the victim. Because these callers are very good in what they do, remember, they are professional criminals, they can easily convince you that they only want to do business with you. And being a businessman, of course, every possible reseller is another opportunity for sales and profit.

However, you should bear in mind that being careful is of utmost importance. Do not readily trust the person at the other end of the line. Do not just give out any information about you especially your private numbers. Do not just give out your credit card number. Do not just give out any information/details about your online store. Have presence of mind and better yer, do not entertain such calls at all.

If you happen to have answered the call already, make sure you get the phone number that called you and do a reverse phone lookup to get basic data about the phone number. All the details you can get about it are what you need to report the call incident to FTC and the police. Be vigilant about such kinds of calls and share your experience to your family and friends. Be a source of information about these kinds of incidents to other people because you will never know how your information can help prevent others from being victimized in the future.

Run your online store with safety in mind. There will always be criminals anywhere from the business world to the privacy of citizens who will do anything to cheat and trick you, be vigilant and never ever let your guards down.
