Dear Clients,

Following your and other cases, we have come to the realization that cybercrime is on the rise in South Korea, Japan, Singapore, and neighboring countries. In South Korea, there are many fake business offers on the internet.

If you have decided to invest your money in projects offered online, please pay special attention to the following:

Here are some tips to assess the authenticity of a website:

  1. Check the URL: First, carefully check the website’s URL (web address). Sometimes fake websites use similar addresses to appear authentic but may contain minor differences, such as spelling errors, additional numbers, or characters. Genuine websites typically have a secure HTTPS protocol and a clear and understandable web address.
  1. Analyze the website’s appearance: Pay attention to the appearance of the website. Fake websites often look less professional than genuine ones. Watch out for poorly designed or inconsistent elements, bad translations, low-quality images, and similar signs.
  1. Verify contact information: Authentic websites usually have clearly displayed contact information, including an address, phone number, and email. If a website lacks this information or makes it hard to find, be suspicious.
  1. Scrutinize content and information: Read the website’s content carefully, especially if it contains information that seems overly sensational or unrealistic. Fake websites often use sensational headlines to attract attention.
  1. Check the privacy policy and terms of use: Genuine websites typically have clearly stated terms of use and privacy policies. Read these documents to understand how the website handles your personal data.
  1. Search engine information: Use search engine tools to verify the authenticity of the website. For example, Google may label websites as “Not Secure” if there are doubts about their authenticity.
  1. Check reputation: Search for online reviews and comments about the website. User experiences and feedback from other users can help you better understand the authenticity of the website.
  1. Be cautious with emails and links: If you arrived at the website through an email or link sent to you, be especially cautious. Phishing emails often contain fake links that lead to fake websites.

In any case, we are here to answer any questions you may have. You can send them through the “Contact Us” form on our website.
