When it comes to online businesses, it is easy to hide behind the anonymity of the Internet. And since you can’t call most online businesses, or go visit them to check out if they are legitimate or not, the caveat “buyer beware” is even more true. As with any financial transaction you do, you must do your due diligence to ensure that you are not participating in some kind of scam..unbeknownst to you of course.
And when there is a lot of money involved, as with online trading, it is easy to see how people can get lured into the push-button mentality. Just push a button and you will make money…so the ads go. But if something were really that easy, would businesses be giving it away? Recently, we’ve seen a lot of Binary trading bot scams which seem to be on the up and up at first glance. There are some that are top quality, and then there are some that are not what they purport to be. Here are some things to look out for.
