The identify of the website owner has been hidden. This may be done for a valid reason as spammers use this information to email website owners. Unfortunately is also makes identification of the owner difficult. We prefer if the website does show his true identity.
It seems that this company is offering a kind of "click fraud". Why would an advertiser pay you to click on his ad, watch his commercial or fill in his survey form if there is no real interest from you as a buyer? While the company may be legit, we recommend extreme caution. Once the company gets caught for committing "click fraud" the people who worked for the scammer do not get paid. If you like to learn more, we recommend you to read our article "Pay to Click Scams".
This company seems to be a job board or a recruitment company. Most of these websites are legit but be aware of so-called Employment Scams. If the company charges money for training or other kinds of services without offering you job certainty, it may be a scam. Check our blog post about Job & Employment scams to be sure.
When we analyzed the reviews we discovered that the reviews are either very positive or negative. We have seen this pattern with several scammy websites. Scammers are buying fake reviews to hide negative reviews about their website. As reviews can be bought for a few cents, it is quite easy to do. The best thing to do is to check the reviews manually. Our article How to Recognize Fake Reviews can help you determine which reviews are real and which one may be fake.
We upped our review of the website as it has been given a high ranking by Tranco. Tranco ranks websites based on popularity (how many people are visiting the website every month) and listings (how many other websites link to the site because they consider it valuable).
The domain name of this website has been registered several years ago. In general, the older the website the more trustworthy it becomes. However, scammers sometimes buy existing websites and start doing their evil thing, so please make sure you check for other scammy attributes as well.
The company seems to support payment methods that offer a "money-back guarantee" such as Alipay, Mastercard, Paypal, and Visa. While this money-back guarantee is not 100% secure, it does allow consumers in most cases to get their money back if the product is not delivered or proves to be fake.
We identified an SSL certificate meaning that the data shared between your browser and the website is encrypted and cannot be read by others. SSL certificates are always used by legit and safe websites. Unfortunately scammers increasingly also use SSL certificates so it is no guarantee that you are visiting a reliable website (source: Xolphin).
